lyrics

Beautiful Blood

Standing sentry on the hill
was our grandfather Will
armed with powder fresh to kill
and no fear in his eyes

He rushed the southern flank
led the troops and broke the rank
forced them back to the bank
of the riverside

Medals pinned to his lapel
one for heaven, two for hell
a tear for every man that fell
face down in the mud

He would sit us on his knee
and tell his stories of bravery
but in his minds eye all he could see
was so much beautiful blood

Laying sentry on the hill
the lonely bones of Will
a flower pot for us to fill
and our beautiful blood
