How Many Devils?

Soldiers
One, two
Pick 'em up and put 'em down again
And watch the miles roll by
Three, four
Pick 'em up and put 'em down again
Until you lay down and you die
One, two
Pick 'em up and put 'em down again
Until your legs start to scream
Three, four
Lay your blanket on the bloody ground
And pray to God you won't dream
One, two
Those damn Yankees ain't as give up easy
As we thought they would be
Three, four
Those damn Yankees ain't as near as scared
Or half as hungry as me
One, two
Pick 'em up and put 'em down again
Is all a body can do
Three, four
Pick 'em up and put 'em down again
Until this bloody war is through

How many miles, how many fears
How many days, how many years
How many rivers of blood, sweat and tears?
How many times into the fray?
How many men won't walk away?
How many hells filled with
How many devils to pay?

One, two
Pick 'em up and put 'em down again
And watch the miles roll on
Three, four
Pick 'em up and put 'em down again
Until your strength is nearly gone
One, two
Pick 'em up and put 'em down again
And dream of home safe and sound
Three, four
Pick 'em up and put 'em down again
Until you're six feet underground
How many miles dead on our feet
Drenched to the bone, baked in the heat
Paying for ground with another retreat
How many times into the fray
How many men won't walk away
How many hells filled with
How many devils to pay?

Cut a man's throat, but don't look in his eyes
Cut till his body is still
Move to the next while the first bastard dies
Measuring life by the men that you kill
How many days, how many more?
How many men lost to this war?
I can't remember what we're fighting for
How many times into the fray?
How many men won't walk away?
How many hells filled with
How many devils to pay?
