Tailgunner

This song is by Iron Maiden and appears on the album No Prayer For The Dying (1990).

Trace your way back 50 years
To the glow of Dresden - blood and tears
In the black above by the cruel searchlight
Men will die men will fight - Yeah!
Who shot who and who fired first?
Dripping death to whet the bloodthirst
No radar lock on - skin and bone
The bomber boys are going home

Climb into the sky never wonder why
Tailgunner, you're a tailgunner
Climb into the sky never wonder why
Tailgunner, you're a tailgunner
Climb into the sky never wonder why
Tailgunner, you're a tailgunner
Climb into the sky never wonder why
Tailgunner, you're a tailgunner

Nail that Fokker kill that son
Going to blow your guts out with my gun
The weather forecast's good for war
Cologne and Frankfurt? Have some more!
Tail end Charlie in the boiling sky
The Enola Gay was my last try
Now that this tailgunner's gone
No more bombers, one big bomb

Climb into the sky never wonder why
Tailgunner, you're a tailgunner
Climb into the sky never wonder why
Tailgunner, you're a tailgunner
Climb into the sky never wonder why
Tailgunner, you're a tailgunner
Climb into the sky never wonder why
Tailgunner, you're a tailgunner
