Vaughn Monroe – Old Soldiers Never Die lyrics
Old Soldier's Never Die
Never die, never die
Old Soldier's Never Die
They just fade away

On the seventh day of December
In the year of forty-one
The free world met disaster
At the hands of the Rising Sun
From the bastions of Corregidor
Pearl Harbor and Bataan
Came the sound of war and fury
And the Death March of free man.

Then from the land
Of way down under
A mighty voice did say
Our cause is just
In God we trust
I will return someday
From Mindanao to Tarawa
Our battle song it grew
Till on Surabachi
At last Old Glory flew

From Iwo, Leyte
And a thousand Isles
Our just cause never ceased
Until one day, he did return
And once more, there was peace
Now somewhere, there stands the man
His duty o'er and won
The world will ne'er forget him
To him we say, "Well done"

Old Soldiers Never Die meanings

    + 1
    After soldiers- regardless of rank- leave the service (, as opposed to dying in battle,) they gradually become detached from their environment and the limelite until they get to a point where they fade from the memory of those who knew them as such (soldiers,) long before they pass away (. After retirement, soldiers usually live a long life because of good health.) so seldom it would be that someone would know of what became of them in their later years or if they even died or how, or would remember them as people other than what they really are- soldiers- they would only remember them as soldiers in the general context of what their general soldierly circumstances were- in general and not personally, for a soldier is a soldier is a soldier;.
