OLD SOLDIER (Mary McFadden / Lacy J. Dalton) Lacy J. Dalton - 1980 I saw him last Friday on a big concert stage The warm amber lights did a lot for his age I touched the backstage pass I wore like a prize I wanted a good look at the old soldier's eyes With a towel cross his shoulders to soak up the sweat He hadn't cooled down from his final set He needed to rest, but the crowd wouldn't give And I saw how he's paid for the life that he's lived You can tell an old soldier by the look in his eyes Seen so many battles, when he sings, he cries So many good times, so many goodbyes You can tell an old soldier by the look in his eyes His road man introduced us, my manager first And I was so nervous and dyin' o'thirst He took one look at me and gave me his beer He said, "I like your record, the best to you, dear" You can tell an old soldier by the look in his eyes Seen so many battles, when he sings, he cries So many good times, so many goodbyes You can tell an old soldier by the look in his eyes You can tell an old soldier by the look in his eyes Seen so many battles, when he sings, we all cry (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2013)
