to

One Tin Soldier
 1960s counterculture era anti-war song written by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter.
Copyright 1969 by ABC / Dunhill Music, Inc. (See below for more information.)

Listen children, to a story, that was written long ago.
 About a kingdom, on a mountain, and the valley folk 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 it in the name of Heaven, you can justify it in the end. 
There wont be any trumpets blowing, come the judgment day.
On the bloody morning after, One Tin Soldier rides away.

So the people of the valley, sent a message up the hill,
 asking for the buried treasure, tons of 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.

(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 judgment day.
On the bloody morning after, One Tin Soldier rides away.

 

Now the valley, cried with anger, mount your horses, draw your swords, and they killed the, mountain people.
 So they won their just rewards.
 Now they stand, 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 judgment day. 
On the bloody morning after, One Tin Soldier rides away.
