Iron Maiden – Tailgunner lyrics


Trace your way back 50 years
To the glow of dresden - blood and tears
In the black above by the cruel searchlight
Men will die and men will fight - yeah|
Who shot who and who fired first?
Dripping death to whet the bloodthirst
No radar lock on - skin and bone
The bomber boys are going home


Climb into the sky never wonder why - tailgunner
You're a tailgunner


Nail that fokker kill that son.
Gonna blow your guts out with my gun
The weather forecast's good for war
Cologne and frankfurt? Have some more|
Tail end charlie in the boiling sky
The enola gay was my last try
Now that this tailgunner's gone
No more bombers (just one big bomb)
