about

imagined as a letter sent home from a young boy at war

lyrics

old man to the right of road
wont you let me lighten that load
consider the frail, the usual amount
in war everything
we had to cut two roads
we counter marched and you doubtless breathe
you clever boy, so sudden a scheme
after the sponge and the hammer
bring out that saw mr. bones if you please
this is the music of shot and shell
doing fearful execution
miserable weapons, the enemy well served
we sent a few to the grave
the cavalry crossed two by two
and the dead they do the same
a wag in company A proclaims he'll have his day
but all I see is the devil doing things his way
shot and drowned and burned alive
somber clouds fight to fill this barely blue sky
wicked swamp pressed to judging
you caught me not a moment too soon
you caught me not a moment too late
divisions of boys sent off with a flag and a lie
while dreaming of marbles and school yard black-eyes
soda pop and rock candy
not cannon balls and yankee-doodle mother fucking dandy
it's a tight line we march we tiny juggernauts
regiment of odd fellows dancing in line
left right left right left right
we've left right behind
not all fall down in time
when you ask for me
when you think of me
i'll be smashing things to the sea
my love, it's total war
my love is total war
