"Wicked Soldier" as written by Jeff Russo, Emerson Hart, Kevin Shepard and Dan Rothchild....
Oh tell the tale of the wicked soldier
Oh tell the tale of the wicked man
Oh tell the tale of the wicked soldier
Oh tell the tale of the wicked man
They say they heard him cry the fool's prayer
They say that - They just say that
For oh, my love's by the old tin wall
She's waiting there - she's waiting there for me
My love's by the old tin wall
She's waiting there - she's waiting there for me
Some say the rope, she is hanging
Some say the rope, she is free
Some say the rope, she is hanging
So say the rope to hang upon me
So say the wise, she can't hear you
So say the wise, she can't hear
So say the wise, she can't hear you
Some say that - they just say that
For oh, my love's by the old tin wall
She's waiting there - she's waiting there for me
All others will compare to her
She's waiting there - she's waiting there for me
Oh my love I've waited here for you
All this time
Oh my love I've waited here for you
All this time
My love's by the old tin wall
She's waiting there - she's waiting there for me
My love's by the old tin wall
She's waiting there - she's waiting there for me
All other's will compare
She'll never know
She'll never know
She'll never know

    General CommentI've long speculated that the soldier in this song is the father of the girl in Soldier's Dauther. In both cases, the songs deal with a soldier, who we're given the impression is something of a bad man. While this song doesn't give much of a clue to why that is or what he's done, it seems to suggest something bad that he's trying to hide, though it may or may not be his fault.

    General Commentwicked soldier + 'the old tin wall' + 'she is hanging' + 'they say they heard him cry the fool' = a soldier ordered to execute a woman?
    If this were the case, sounds like the song is from the perspective of the woman's lover
