WAR-WEARY BLUES By Lucillus (Sung to the tune of "I'd rather be a Cowboy") I left Rome in the springtime When the flowers were starting to bloom The blood-soaked earth to feed them I couldn't leave too soon. My heart and head were weary I've seen too much of war And although I am a warrior I just couldn't take no more. I wonder if I can forget now All the fighting for awhile Then lay me down beside a small stream And lose myself in some sweet lady's smile. It's not that I regretted All the fighting I had to do It just seemed never ending And my mind was full of you The look upon your sweet face The day we said goodbye I hope that you remember I know I will until I die. I wonder if I can forget now All the fighting for awhile Then lay me down beside a small stream And lose myself with the memory of your smile. No matter how hard I try to forget you Your memory will always be there in my mind No matter how far I go in the world now A woman like you I know I'll never find. Oh, and I miss you so this evening With the full moon on the rise And if I die tomorrow There'll be tears still in my eyes. But I hear the enemy coming As I raise my weary head Maybe it will end now And I can rest among the dead. I wonder if I can forget now But peace is something I'll never see And soon at last it will be over Then I hope my friends can come and bury me.
