lyrics

She:
He’s gone now
They said he had to go away
Oh, please don’t be a fool
Don’t be too brave
Live to fight another day

So I’m all alone
And winter’s coming in
Oh don’t be gone too long
Don’t leave me all alone

I’ll never understand why men kill other men
Leaving fields stained with blood
And tear them from their loves and lives
I’ll never understand

He:
It’s cold here
And I’m so very far away
I’ll come marching back someday
Please don’t let your heart stray

I feel all alone
But I look up at the stars
With your locket near my heart
And dream we’re not so far apart

Both:
I’ll never understand why men kill other men
Leaving fields stained with blood
And tear them from their loves and lives
I’ll never understand

Enter the Bad Guy:
Oh little miss, you’re such a dreamer
You don’t really think he’s coming back
And if he does you know he’ll never be the same
You’re gonna lose this land unless you take my name
I’m gonna make you take my name

My pockets lined with gold from killing
Let bullets fly and cannons fire
As I lie in wait to make you take my name
I’mm gonna make you take my name

She (He):
And if he’s gone forever (I feel cold now)
Then I just can’t stay here (Wish I could have said goodbye)
Not with that man (The bullet found me)
I’ll let the mighty river take me away (I’ll find you again someday)

Both:
I’ll never understand why men kill other men
Leaving fields stained with blood
And tear them from their loves and lives
I’ll never understand
