Soldiers Return- (transcribed by vh) Slow

the years go by They
stole your man off to war Will
you see the child As
you sing a better song And
it pains me To
think the soldiers I
will pray For
you've gone to guide you home Chorus

she cried for the soldiers return Despair
of feeling alone for so long By
the light of a candle that burns For
his life for the day of the soldiers return Hear

the cannons fire Lost
voices echo in the night See
the spoils of war Young
men are falling ooh, Hear
the drummer Marching
over the hill Love
returning The
graves of the battle lies still Chorus


the drummer Marching
over the hill Love
returning And
the graves of the battle lies still Chorus
