Soldier In The Willow

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

Soldier in the willow as the fight is fought and won,
Will you wake when morning comes to see the rising sun?
Will the sky be clearer on a new day?
Does a lot depend on what you say?

Battle-scars will always show in you mentality;
General in the field of responsibility.
Duodenal ulcers, one by one;
Does a lot depend on what you've done?

Do you ever wonder if the fight must still go on
When you can't afford decisions ever to go wrong?
You don't drive the tanks or fire the gun.
You just sit alone, the lonely one.

Don't explain the feeling that's inside your very soul.
Ambition is your fuel, so drive on towards your goal.
The enemy must perish one by one.
Soldier in the willow, have your fun.
