The Big Battle Lyrics

(Johnny Cash)
© '61 Anne Rachel Music, ASCAP / Song Of Cash Music, ASCAP

I think sir the battle is over and the young soldier laid down his gun
I'm tired of running for cover for I think the bottle is done
Oh see over there where we fought them it's quiet for they've all gone away
All left is the dead and the dying the ground's covered with them today

So you think the battle is over and you even lay down your gun
You carelessly rise from you cover for you think the battle is done
Now boy hit the dirt listen to me for I'm still the one in command
Get flat on the ground here beside me and lay your ear hard to the sand

Can you hear the deafening rumble can you feel the trembling ground
It's not just the horses and wagons that make such a deafening sound
The fight yet to come's not with cannon nor will the fight be hand to hand
No one will regroup the forces no charge will a general command

The battle will rage in the bosom of mother and sweetheart and wife
Brother and sister and daughter will grieve for the rest of their lives
Now go ahead rise from your cover be thankful that God let you live
Go fight the rest of the battle for those who gave all they could give

I see sir the battle's not over the battle has only begun
The rest of this battle will cover the part that has blackened the sun
For though there's no sound of the cannon and though there's no smoke in the sky
I'm dropping the gun and the sabre and ready for the battle am I
