Listen old soldier wherever you are
The hills or the valleys come near or come far
They say youth is a treasure we waste when we're young
So come down from that place where your medals are hung
You're forever returning and yearning to fight
And you feel just like an old soldier tonight

Listen old soldier 'cause time doesn't wait
The moon's on your shoulder and the hour is late
And something there inside still calls out to you
And you won't fade away whatever you do
You're forever beginning barely winning the fight
You feel just like an old soldier tonight

You're not getting no younger that much is true now
But you still got that hunger burning in you now
So what do you do now?
(What do you do now?)

Listen old soldier to the sound in your ears
Of too many battles of too many years
But there's only one thing you've learned in defeat
That losing is bitter and victory is sweet
Yeah you're always unraveling traveling light
And you feel just like an old soldier tonight
You feel just like an old soldier tonight
(That's right)

Just an old soldier
