Washington’s Report (the battle of Valley Forge)

Music by C Flats

Cold restless night I ponder mortality
All I know and all I feel
Marched in twelve thousand strong
Blue and bold led by General Washington
Toughest of time yet to come
No battle fought yet we’re losing some
Winter’s bane kills ‘em just the same
Figured maybe our time had come
Through the hunger, disease and hard weather’s numb

“An army of skeleton’s, Stoic and stalwart”
Said Washington in his report

Continental loss, 2000 desertion cost
100 score to hardships lost
Analyze all systems failed
How many can one take tigers by the tail
Washington on bended knee
Prays to god we’ll all make it through
Hand on heart for his ragged crew
And with a roar when that winter broke
Retook Philadelphia in sole less shoes

“An army of skeleton’s, Stoic and stalwart”
Said Washington in his report

“An army of skeleton’s, Stoic and stalwart”
Said Washington in his report

Left, Right freedom fight
An eye for an eye, some live some die
One , two what will we do
Backs against the wall, some rise some fall
Left, Right for freedom we fight
An eye for an eye, some live some die
One, two what will we do
Backs against the wall, some will rise some will fall
Left, Right freedom in sight
An eye for an eye, some will live, some will die
One, two what will you do
Back against the wall, will you rise, will you fall
Left, Right we got freedom in sight
Take two eyes for an eye, we will live and they will die
One, two what will you do now your backs against the wall
We will rise and they will fall
