Infantryman

Album "Two-Bit Suit"

"Maple leaf" è la foglia dell'acero, è la bandiera canadese.
My boy came home from the war today
I stood by as his plane touched down
An infantryman on foreign shores
Coming on back to his hometown
And it's been so long since he's been gone
I stand before him now and gaze in disbelief
My boy came home from the war today
Draped in the Mapleleaf

My boy came home from the war today
With a medal for valour in combat
They hoisted high on their shoulders
And everyman gathered there clutched his hat
But no fanfare played and no speeches were made
No pretty young maids waved a hankerchief
My boy came home from the war today
Draped in the Mapleleaf

When my boy came home from the war today
He was draped in the Mapleleaf
My boy came home from the war today
Now my heart is filled with grief
