Old Forgotten Soldier

by Harry Nilsson

Reaching for a butterfly

Old soldiers never die

and the gun against their shoulder

Well, it gets a little older

And just like that old shoulder

it just gets put away

Well, I'm an old, forgotten soldier,

since they put an end to war.

And i like to tell my story,

But you don't wanna hear about the war.

I'm an old, forgotten campain hero,

left without a cause,

because, they took away my wars.

I'm an old, forgotten railroad,

a broken, lonely ammo-train.

And my rusty ammunition

has been left out in the rain

I'm an old, forgotten part-time doughboy

I tried to save the world

The world was round,

we fired around,

heard all around the world

I'm an old, forgotten campain hero

Left without a cause,

because, they took away my wars.

I'm an old, forgotten railroad

A deserted ammo-train

And my rusty ammunition

has been left out in the rain.
