Gone To Shiloh Lyrics - Elton John



Review The Song (0)


Luther left at first light Friday morning

Little Dan and Becky wave good-bye

They're gonna have to share the wait together

Idle hands will see a good fire slowly die.

Gone to Shiloh for the Union
Shoulder to shoulder, side by side

Gone to Shiloh, hope springs eternal

When flags and bullets start to fly

April's come and the air smells fresh with rain

They watched his shadow fade around the bend
He's headed for a different kind of thunder

And the stunned surprise in the eyes of dying men

Gone to Shiloh for the Union

Shoulder to shoulder, side by side

Gone to Shiloh, time passes slowly

When flags and bullets start to fly

The old black rooster sang in death down that dirt road

His steps in bold, his man of fancy free

I pray we see him alive and well in the forehead

In that Godforsaken place in Tennessee

Gone to Shiloh for the Union

Shoulder to shoulder, side by side

Gone to Shiloh, men stand united

When flags and bullets start to fly

After all this, if we should prevail

Heaven help the South

When Sherman comes their way
