25 daniels rode off that day
they were wearing the same coat of blue
no one was sure how many would die
but most guessed it'd be at least 22

and so damn old man time and his dirty trick ways
made the worst month of her life feel like 36 days
and the last time she smiled was for heaven and you
in the winter of 1972

25 daniels rode off that day
they were wearing the same coat of blue
each of them thought they would surely survive
cos their courage was loyal and true

and so damn the other side and their dirty trick ways
how the redcoats conspired to make dirty water ways
and the last time she smiled was for heaven and you
in the winter of 1972

on the lam was one daniel the lone runaway
who had thrown off his coat of blue
he won a whole in his sock, scored a hole in his shirt
where the bullets should have gone through

and so damn old man time and his dirty trick ways
made the worst month of her life feel like 36 days
and the last time she smiled was for heaven and you
in the winter of 1972
