my trigger time was done

 

There was a letter on the doormat

A call-up for the Corp

They want to train me up for combat

Because we’re gonna go to war

 

It was fifteen years ago now

When the fighting had begun

But I made it back to Jamestown

That’s when I lay down my gun

 

And for all the bitter fighting

The war was never won

But I was lucky and I made it

And my trigger time was done, my trigger time was done

 

But I’m living with the memory

And devastation that I saw

Losing good friends in the fighting

No one ever wins a war

 

I had to start a new life over

Without my friends around

I took em back to North Dakota

Where family put em in the ground

 

And for all the bitter fighting

The war was never won

But I was lucky and I made it

And my trigger time was done, my trigger time was done

 

Their luck ran out at sundown

The day they were overrun

All my friends were there together

And all died by the gun

 

And for all the bitter fighting

The war was never won

But I was lucky and I made it

And my trigger time was done, my trigger time was done
