Cuban Soldier

The Carter Family

exibições 61

Far away in a Spanish dungeon
A Cuban soldier lay
Slowly dying from the torture
Inflicted day by day
He begged to send a message
But this kindness was denied
So he called his comrades to him
And told his story e're he died

When Cubie gains her freedom
And the Spaniards cease to reign
There's a loved one on that island
I will never see again
Oh find her for me comrades
And tell her you were by my side
And I bid you take this message
To a soldiers promised bride

Tis the same old story comrades
Love weeps when beauty is done
When Cubie was struggling for her freedom
I was ordered to my gun
Though I'm a captain dying
The struggle will soon be o'er
Tell her I said to meet m
Where the soldiers fight no more
