Testo One Tin Soldier – Joni Mitchell

Testo della canzone One Tin Soldier di Joni Mitchell
Album:
Listen children to a story that was written long ago
‘bout a kindom on a mountain and the valley folk below
on the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone
and the valley people swore they’d have it for their very own

CHORUS: go ahead and hate your neighbor
go ahead and cheat a friend
do it in the name of heaven
you could justify it in the end
There won’t be any trumpets blowing
come the judgment day
on the bloody morning after
One tin soldier rides away

So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill,
asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they’d kill.
Came an answer from the kingdom
