One tin sldier  Unknown

[F]Listen children [C]to a story [Dm]that was written long ago
[Bb]'Bout a kingdom [F]on a mountain [Gm7]and the valley folk below
[F]On the mountain [C]was a treasure [Dm]buried deep beneath a stone
[Bb]And the valley [F]people swore they'd [Gm7]have it for their very o[F]wn[Bb] [F]
Go ahead and hate your [Am]neighbour, [Bb]go ahead and cheat a frien[F]d
Do it in the name of [Am]heaven, [Bb]justify it in the en[F]d
There won't be any trumpets [Am]blowin, [Bb]come the judgement da[F]y
On the bloody morning after......
One tin [Bb]soldier rides away.[F] [Bb]
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
Came an answer from the kingdom "With our brothers we wil share
All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there."
Now the valley cried with anger, mount your horses, draw your sword
and they killed the mountain people so the 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.
please excuse any spelling mistakes, and for the americans please excuse
the canadian spelling of the word "neighbour".
DAVE S. WAITE # "You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best, # I've been gone for a week, I've been
Flagg # Drunk since I left." _Spirit of the West_
