Baghdad Knights Lee Hazlewood
[A]A soldier was sent made to go and he went
To exist on the outskirts of [F#m]hell.
And he [D]wrote a letter to [A]someone
Wrote [D]sometimes we [A]fight, [D]sometimes we [A]run
It's [D]just like playing [A]football â?¦ with a gun.
[D]Ahhh ahhh ahhh ahhh ahhhhhh
Those Baghdad [A]Knights! (repeat)
And the soldiers they stay, shoot to kill and then pray
They soon leave the outskirts of hell.
And they write their letters to loved ones
Write sometimes we fight, sometimes we run
Just like playing football - with a gun.
And when the sun fades away at the end of the day
And the sand in your mind starts to cool
the stars starts to shine and they play tricks on your mind
Cause you brought your gun to school
