IRON MAIDEN (The Trooper)


YouŽll take my life but iŽll take yours too

YouŽll fire your musket but iŽll run you through

So when youŽre waiting for the next atack

YouŽd better stand thereŽs no turning back


The Bugle sounds of the charge begins

But on this battlefield no one wins

The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath

As i plunge on into a certain death.


The horse he sweats with fear we break to run

The mighty roar of the Russian guns

And as we race towards the human wall

The screams of pain as my comrades fall.


We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground

And the russian fire another round

We get so near yet so far away

We wont leave to fight another day


We get so close near enough to fight

When a Russian gets me in his sights

He pulls the trigger and i feel the blow

A burst of rounds take my horse below


And as i lay there gazing at the sky

My bodyŽs numb and my throat is dry

And as i lay forgotten and alone

Without a tear i draw my parting groan.
