Angel Of The Battlefield / Single / June 06 2017
Lyrics by  Ed Millican

V1:

I would force the men to hate him
For his constant defiance
If he would not touch a weapon
He would d face a brutal silence

Hoped he was a section 8
But he would not cooperate
Attempts to bribe and court-martial
But even this could not bend his will

Chorus:
Shame on me and every man
Who thought him to be a coward
The Angel of the battlefield
Has courage like no other

He came to me that night
When I feared all hope was lost
I was one of 75
That the angel carried off

V2:
The enemy came from nowhere
Before we could react
Their punishment, severe
A merciless attack

Held our ground as long as possible
But retreat was inevitable
One man prayed and stayed behind
Searched for the wounded and the dying

Chorus:
Shame on me and every man
Who thought him to be a coward
The Angel of the battlefield
Has courage like no other
He came to me that night
When I feared all hope was lost
I was one of 75
That the angel carried off

Outro:
Armed with rope, and the smoke as his cloak
He kept praying to save just one more
I could hear him gasping for breath
And the mayhem from above
As he lowered me away from death Slowly down the mountain bluff
