One Tin Soldier  Original Cast

Lis[C]ten children [G]to a story t[Am]hat was written long ago
Bo[F]ut a kingdom [C]on a mountain a[Dm]nd the valley f[G7]olk below.
O[C]n the mountain w[G]as a treasure bu[Am]ried deep beneath a stone
A[F]nd the valley pe[C]ople swore they'd h[Dm]ave it for their v[G]ery o[C]wn.
G[C]o ahead and hate you n[Em]eighbor, [F]go ahead and cheat a fr[C]iend.
Do it in the name of he[Em]aven. Jus[F]tify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets bl[Em]owin' c[F]ome the judgment d[C]ay.
On the bloody morning [F]after, one tin sol[Am]dier r[G7]ides a[C]way.


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 will 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 they 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.
