    Lyrics

    Reaching for a butterfly
    Old soldiers never die
    And the gun against their shoulder
    Well, it gets a little older
    And just like that old shoulder
    It just gets put away
    Well, I'm an old, forgotten soldier
    Since they put an end to war
    And I like to tell my story
    But you don't wanna hear about the war

    I'm an old, forgotten campaign hero
    Left without a cause
    Because, they took away my wars
    I'm an old, forgotten railroad
    A broken, lonely ammo-train
    And my rusty ammunition
    Has been left out in the rain

    I'm an old, forgotten part-time doughboy
    I tried to save the world
    The world was round
    We fired around
    Heard all around the world

    I'm an old, forgotten campaign hero
    Left without a cause
    Because, they took away my wars
    I'm an old, forgotten railroad
    A broken, lonely ammo-train
    And my rusty ammunition
    Has been left out in the rain
