Iron Maiden – The Trooper

Iron Maiden – The Trooper

Intro: Em   D  C  D (3x) 

Em                                      D
You'll take my life but I’ll take yours too 
Em                                         D
You'll fire your musket but I’ll run you through 
C                                  D
So when you're waiting for the next attack 
Em                                     D
You'd better stand there's no turning back. 
Em                                D
The bugle sounds and the charge begins 
Em                             D
But on this battlefield no one wins 
C                                   D
The smell of acrid smoke and horse’s breath 
Em                         D
As i plunge on into certain death.

D                   Em
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 
D                     Em (EmDCD)2x
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Em                                       D
The horse he sweats with fear we break to run 
Em                            D
The mighty roar of the Russian guns 
C                              D
And as we race towards the human wall 
Em                                  D
The screams of pain as my comrades fall 
Em                                 D
We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground 
Em                             D
And the Russians fire another round 
C                        D
We get so near yet so far away 
Em                            D
We won't live to fight another day. 
Em                             D
We get so close near enough to fight 
Em                           D
When a Russian gets me in his sights 
C                                 D
He pulls the trigger and i feel the blow 
Em                              D
A burst of rounds take my horse below. 
Em                             D
And as i lay there gazing at the sky 
Em                             D
My bodies numb and my throat is dry 
C                          D
And as i lay forgotten and alone 
Em                             D
Without a tear i draw my parting groan
D                    Em
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 
D                    Em (EmDCD)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
