A Nations's Pride

This song is by Beau and appears on the album Beau (1969).

Once more, the flash of silver in the early sun;
The sabres drawn in unison. The cavalry,
Roaring out its battle cry
Thunders forth to do or die
Across the valley, green and wide
Once more...

Once more the guns will echo down the valley floor -
The musket crack and the cannon roar - the innocents
Accept their orders and obey
And some will cry whilst others pray.
It happens now as yesterday
Once more...

Once more the lie that told you God was on your side
Is just another nation's pride. The promises
That they would never charge again
Have proven true for many men
Whose sun will never rise again
Any more...

Once more the guns will echo down the valley floor -
The musket crack and the cannon roar - the innocents
Accept their orders and obey
And some will cry whilst others pray.
It happens now as yesterday
Once more...
