Ricky Skaggs:
Lord, he is one, he's a poor soldier's son
And his heart has a part that is torn
And we all living on for the poor soldier's son
He has died long before he is born (x2)

Barry Gibb:
True expression, life's devotion
Holy Moses, know that somewhere
That someone loves you
Fighting for you tonight, tonight

Failed to be one, he's a poor soldier's son
And he stands with his eyes to the sky
Let us pray for the one, for the poor soldier's son
He's the man with a child in his eye (x2)
Ohh...

True expression, life's devotion
Holy Moses, know that somewhere
That someone loves you
Fighting for you tonight, tonight

Both:
Praised be the one, for the poor soldier's son
And his heart finds a place on the ground
Let us pray for the one, for the poor soldier's son
He is lost long before he is found (x2)
Ohh...
