You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the
You'd better stand there's no turning back.
The bugle sounds and the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death.
The horse he sweats with fear we break to
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall
hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight
We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the
A burst of rounds take my horse below.
And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan
