One Tin Soldier Lyrics

One Tin Soldier Lyrics

Listen, children, to a story
That was written long ago
‘Bout a kingdom on a mountain
And the valley-folk below

On the mountain was a treasure
Buried deep beneath the stone
And the valley-people swore

They’d have it for their very own
Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend

Do it in the name of heaven
You can justify it in the end

There won’t be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after

One tin soldier rides away
So the people of the valley
Sent a message up the hill

Asking for the buried treasure
Tons of gold for which they’d kill
It came to an answer from the mountain
With our brothers, we will share

All the secrets of our mountain
All the riches buried there
Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend

Do it in the name of heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won’t be any trumpets blowing

Come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after
One tin soldier rides away

Now the valley cried with anger
“Mount your horses! Draw your sword!”
And they killed the mountain-people

So they won their just reward
Now they stood beside the treasure
On the mountain, dark and red

Turned the stone and looked beneath it
“Peace on Earth” was all it said
Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend

Do it in the name of heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won’t be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgment day

On the bloody morning after
One tin soldier rides away
Go ahead and hate your neighbor

Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of heaven
You can justify it in the end

There won’t be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after
One tin soldier rides away
