Natalie Merchant Soldier, Soldier Lyrics

Last updated:

Said, "soldier, now soldier
Would you marry me
Before the fight comes on?"

"how can I marry
Such a pretty little girl
When I got no suit to put on?"

Well she went to the dry goods store
Hard as she could run
She bought the finest
Little suit in the store,
"come on soldier put this on"

Said, "soldier, now soldier
Would you marry me
Before the fight comes on?"

"how can I marry
Such a pretty little girl
When I got no shoes to put on"

Well she went to the dry goods store
Hard as she could run
She bought the finest
Little shoes in the store
"come on soldier put these on"

Said, "soldier, now soldier
Would you marry me
Before the fight comes on?"

"how can I marry
Such a pretty little girl
When I got no hat to put on?"

Well she went to the dry goods store
Hard as she could run
She bought the finest
Little hat in the store
"come on soldier put this on"

Said, "soldier, now soldier
Would you marry me
Before the fight comes on?"

"how can I marry
Such an ugly little girl
When I got a pretty wife at home?"
