Rock Poetry

Soldier Boy 

High on the hill above the town, the smoke of war hung low.
Where have all those fine men gone? Did they really have to go?

The sun sank low beneath the sky, the armies had moved on.
Billy Brown rode into town, his battle had been won.

Sunshine Sue you've lost your smile,
Sunshine Sue you're cryin'.
Sunshine Sue what can you do,
Your soldier boy is dyin'.

He'd gone to battle as a boy, had he stood the test?
Billy Brown was now a man, but wounded in his chest.

Be brave young girl and proud for him, never to forget.
This the cross you have to bear, yet so much to regret.

Sunshine Sue you've lost your smile,
Sunshine Sue you're cryin'.
Sunshine Sue what can you do?
Your soldier boy is dyin'.
