"Soldier Blue" as written by and Ian Robert/duffy Astbury....
Yeah, come on now

Soldier blue, bloodstained red
Hey people, he's gonna bust your head
A real bad dream, yeah, you know it's true
Kiss his boots or you'll be through

Out of the night comes a soldier right
Line you up in his gunsight
His mind's exploded, ego's overloaded
Hey children, start-a-runnin'

Soldier blue, love is out of season
Soldier blue, yeah, ain't fighting for no reason, no, no
Ain't fighting for no reason, no, no

Well, soldier blue, soldier fright
He's gonna bust up everything in sight
A real heavy dude in a killing mood
Pack your bags or you'll be through, you'll be through, yeah

He's guaranteed to shatter all your dreams
His mind's exploded, ego's overloaded
Hey children, start-a-runnin', yeah

Soldier blue, oh, love is out of season
Soldier blue, ain't fighting for no reason
Soldier blue, yeah, love is out of season
Soldier blue, yeah, her love is out of season

I have seen the sunset, the sea on fire
Ships burn off the coast of Orion
Dreams of peace wait on the horizon, oh yeah
Clouds filled with blood rain on the water
While nighttime's fingers clench the light shut

Our sister rides the horse, Apocalypse
Now is the closing
Love has no season, yeah
Love has no season

Come on shake ya sinner

Soldier blue, love is out of season
Soldier blue, ain't fighting for no reason
Soldier blue, yeah, love is out of season
Soldier blue, fighting for no reason
Soldier blue, fighting for no reason, yeah
Soldier blue, fighting for no reason, yeah

Love has no season
Love has no season
Love has no season, yeah

    My InterpretationI am not absolutely sure, but I believe this song refers to the US soldiers who drove Indians from their land and onto reservations, after the Civil War, during the white man’s expansion into the West. I know this reference was made in Run To The Hills, by Iron Maiden, so it seems a pretty safe bet. I would love to know more, if anyone out there has more information!

    General CommentSadly, this comes from The Sand Creek Massacre in Colorado in 1864. There was a movie loosely based on this tragic event released in 1970 called Soldier Blue.
