Oh brother, I'm tired
My courage gone away
My gun it won't fire
And my legs can't bear this weight

I want to run far
So far from this place
Where the grass grows tall
I can hide beneath the blades

Put me out to pasture
I don't want to live on this battlefield
Put me out to pasture
I don't want to live on this battlefield

Oh brother, I tried
I can't see it anymore
Now I forgot why
Oh, who I'm fighting for?

I want to lie down, my memory erased
Upon the soft ground
I can feel it's warm embrace

Put me out to pasture
I don't want to live on this battlefield no more
Put me out to pasture
I don't want to live on this battlefield

And then the sun upon your face
And the silent wind pushed across the plains
How long must I wait?

Put me out to pasture
I don't want to live on this battlefield no more
Put me out to pasture
I don't want to live on this battlefield

Put me out to pasture
Put me out to pasture
Put me out to pasture
Put me out to pasture
