Iron Maiden - The Trooper (Live) lyrics

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when your waiting for the next attack
You'dbetter stand there's no turning back
The bugle sounds the charge begins
But on this battle field no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath as I plunge on into certain death

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh x2

The horse he swaets with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We wont live to fight another day



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