Lyrics

He was just a soldier and he burned his last bridge down
He gave up everything he had for the honor of the crown
Deep into the jungle he could hear those battle sounds
A single bullet from a jungle warror laid him down
He was just a soldier

Yesterday I thought I saw him on a busy street
I tried to look but turned away, the picture incomplete
It only took a moment but I know just what I saw
A faceless ghost to wander, a reminder to us all
He was just a soldier

And a letter that you wrote to your darling bride, falls by her side
As the marrow is let from your dying bones, you leave her now. All alone

Where have all the soldiers gone, now that war is done
In over-crowded graveyards lies a brother and a son
He was just a soldier and he burned his last bridge down
He gave up everything he had for the honor of the crown
He was just a soldier
