Should have added in the previous thread about Lacy Dalton, that she is also a first class songwriter. Could not find lyrics to Old Soldier, however someone posted Lacy singing the song on youtube. Should be of interest to anyone who has spent a life singing to an audience.

Jaysus, it's 11:36 am here and I have tears in my eyes.

Here's the lyrics, Arkie.


OLD SOLDIER
Mary McFadden - Lacy J. Dalton
© Mary McFadden - Lacy J. Dalton

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 shoulder 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' of 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...

You can tell an old soldier by the look in his eyes
Seen so many battles when he sings we all cry

Thanks for the lyrics. I did everything I could but listen to the recording over and over. I rediscovered Lacy J. a couple of years ago and am much richer for it.
