Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Lucky Man lyrics

He had white horses
And ladies by the score
All dressed in satin
And waiting by the door

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers
They made up his bed
A gold covered mattress
On which he was laid

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars
For his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory
The people would sing

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him
His blood ran as he cried
No money could save him
So he laid down and he died

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

    A soldier is looked upon and admired by his public for his courage and the benefits it has attached to his position as a warrior and a protector of their safety - but, once he has died in battle for their king and country - they look upon his legacy as still heroic on the life he led. And, much like the verse "the king is dead - long live the king" their lives may not have changed much., or, maybe they aalways have a replacement for their safety, or maybe the soldier is sacrificial for their governent and/or king. Or maybe.
