about

Again, a song inspired by the Civil War... about young men the night before they go to war... about the fact there should have been little difference between them, whatever the side they fought for.
There's a little hope at the end, because there's always been some solidarity among ordinary soldiers, but the key phrase of the song is "there's no hope on the battlefront and your names will soon be forgotten". 'cause that's what's happened.

lyrics

Clean your gun and brush your horse
You might not need them tho’
Bid farewell to your beloved
And love her right tonight
For you might not see her soon

When it’s done
Spin a yarn with the boys
Tell the tales your uncles told
But keep in mind you’ll be alone
When war comes

When it’s done
Spin a yarn with the boys
Tell the tales your uncles told
But keep in mind you’ll be alone
When war comes

Boys, no matter where you’re from
Your father’s yellin’ your mother’s howlin’
‘cause there’s no hope on the battlefront
And your names will soon
Be forgotten

When it’s done
Spin a yarn with the boys
Tell the tales your uncles told
You might not be alone
When it comes
