    Lyrics

    the marching band came down along main street
    the soldiers knew to stand behind
    i looked across and there i saw billy
    waiting to go and join the line
    and with her head upon his shoulder,
    his young & lovely fiance
    from where i stood
    i saw she was crying
    and through her tears i heard her say

    billy, don't be a hero
    don't be a fool with your life
    billy, don't be a hero,
    come back and make me your wife
    and as billy started to go
    she said keep your pretty head low
    billy don't be a hero
    come back to me

    the soldier blues were trapped on a hill side
    the battle raging all around
    the seargent cried
    "we've got to hang on boys
    we've got to hold this piece of ground
    i need a volunteer to ride up
    and bring us back some extra men"
    and billys hand was up in a moment
    forgetting all the words she said
    she said....

    billy, don't be a hero
    don't be a fool with your life
    billy, don't be a hero,
    come back and make me your wife
    and as billy started to go
    she said keep your pretty head low
    billy don't be a hero
    come back to me

    i heard his fiance got a letter
    that told how billy died that day
    the letter said he was a hero
    she should be proud he died that way
    i heard she threw the letter away
