One Tin Soldier
by Mindy Simmons



listen children to a story, that was written long ago. about a kingdom on a mountain and a valley far below. on the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone, and the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own.( chorus; go ahead and hate your neighbor , go ahead and cheat a friend, do in the name of heaven, you can justify it in the end. there wont be any trumpets blowing come the judgement day. on the bloody morning after,ooooh one tin soldier rides away.) so the people of the valley sent a message up the hill, asking for the buried treasure of the 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 swords, 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! ( chorus; go ahead and hate your neighbor go ahead and cheat a friend do it in the name of heaven you can justify it in the end. there wont be any trumpets blowing come the judgement day, on the bloody morning after oooooh ooooh one tin soldier rides away. repeat chorus again.)
