Can anyone tell me the words to morricones 'death of a soldier' from GB&U? You know it. I spent 40-something yrs just mumbling over it pretending I know it. I know there are english words in there, somewhere!
Good luck! Thanx!

And for reference, here are the lyrics, copied from that post:

THE STORY OF A SOLDIER
English lyrics by Tommie Connor

Bugles are calling from prairie to shore,
"Sign up" and "Fall in" and march off to war.
Drums beating loudly,
Hearts beating proudly,
March Blue and Grey
And smile as you say good-bye.

Smoke hides the valleys
And fire paints the plains.
Loud roar the cannons
'Til ruin remains:
Blue grass and cotton
Burnt and forgotten
All hope seems gone
So soldier march on to die.

There in the distance
A flag I can see,
Scorched and in ribbons
But whose can it be;
How ends the story,
Whose is the glory,
Ask if we dare
Our comrades out there who sleep.
