charlie boy lyrics – the lumineers

charlie boy

[verse]
charlie boy, don’t go to war, first born in forty – four
kennedy made him believe we could do much more

ohhh
lillian, don’t hang your head, love should make you feel good
in uniform you raised a man, who volunteered to stand

[bridge]
ohhh

[chorus]
play the bugle, play the taps and
make your mothers proud
raise your rifles to the sky boys
fire that volley loud

[verse]
news was bad on upland ave., metuchen mourn our loss
sons rebelled, while fathers yelled, and mothers clutched the cross

[bridge]
ohhh

[chorus]
play the bugle, play the taps and
make your fathers proud
raise your rifles to the sky boys
fire that volley loud
