A Soldier's Dream
Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch
From the Motion Picture Brother Sun Sister Moon.
Original tuning is about half tone down (or maybe less)
Oh, the d[Am]rums are so mournful
My d[G]ear, oh, my [Am]love
As my thoughts they are t[Dm]urning your w[Am]ay
W[Dm]here are the e[Am]yes
I beh[G]eld with my [E]own
On that l[Am]ong ago l[Dm]azy da[Am]y?
Dead are the leaves
On the stark battlefield
The stench of the flesh sickens me
I sleep soaking wet a
And the worms eat my bread
The mourning of men fills the air
Oh, green are the leaves
On the old apple tree
Those sweet perfumed blossoms of spring
Entwined in your hair
A smile in your eyes
A soft blade of grass for a ring
Oh, the drums are so mournful
My dear, oh, my love
As my thoughts they are turning your way
Where are the eyes
I beheld with my own
On that long ago lazy day?
On that long ago lazy day
