Tin Soldier
Copyright © 2011 Thomas M. Link – All Rights Reserved

Verse:

I am just a tin soldier
In this undeclared war
My beliefs are my comfort
They’re what I’m fighting for

Blame the lazy and wicked
That is my battle cry
I am just a tin soldier,
And I never ask why

Verse:
I watched the rich fill their coffers
I heard rage in the streets
Not one tithe would they offer
And I believed their deceit

Now the rich have their comfort
While my countrymen die
Am I still a tin soldier?
I have tears in my eyes

Chorus:
And I never thought this could happen to me
This is a world that never should be
I watched as my world came crumbling down
And I heard my own cry – in that terrible sound

Bridge:
Now you may be rich off the working and poor
But, open your eyes to the wolves at the door
They may seem weak and you may be strong.
But what have you won when the future is gone?

Verse:
I am just a tin soldier
with the battle lines drawn
I thought I saw tomorrow
In the fires of dawn

But the fires were anger
And the promise a lie
Am I still a tin soldier?
I have tears in my eyes

Chorus:
And I never thought this could happen to me
This is a world that never should be
I watched as my world came crumbling down
And I heard my own cry – in that terrible sound

Yes I heard my own cry – in that terrible sound


I – am - just – a - tin - soldier
