E5                                      D5  
You'll take my life but i'll take yours too  
E5                                          D5 
You'll fire your musket but i'll run you through  
C5                                   D5  
So when you're waiting for the next attack  
E5                                      D5  
You'd better stand there's no turning back.  
E5                                 D5  
The bugle sounds and the charge begins  
E5                              D5  
But on this battlefield no one wins  
C5                                    D5  
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath  
E5                          D5  
As i plunge on into certain death.  
D5                    E5 
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh  
D5                      E5

E5                                        D5  
The horse he sweats with fear we break to run  
E5                             D5  
The mighty roar of the russian guns  
C5                               D5  
And as we race towards the human wall  
E5                                   D5  
The screams of pain as my comrades fall  
E5                                  D5  
We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground  
E5                              D5  
And the russians fire another round  
C5                         D5 
We get so near yet so far away  
E5                             D5 
We won't live to fight another day. 
D5                    E5  
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh  
D5                      E5    
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

E5                              D5 
We get so close near enough to fight  
E5                            D5 
When a russian gets me in his sights  
C5                                  D5 
He pulls the trigger and i feel the blow  
E5                               D5 
A burst of rounds take my horse below.  
E5                              D5 
And as i lay there gazing at the sky  
E5                              D5 
My body's numb and my throat is dry  
C5                           D5 
And as i lay forgotten and alone  
E5                              D5 
Without a tear i draw my parting groan  
D5                     E5  
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh  
D5                     E5    
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 
 
 
         E5           D5           C5            D5
