Trooper (Iron Maiden Cover)

Lyrics & Chords

This has been pending for a long long time. A song that I’ve covered in college and something that most college students (especially engineering) still headbang to! One of Iron Maiden’s most recognized songs. Probably a track that is too heavy for most muzibians :-)

This goes out to all my fellow headbangers out there… You know who you are!

LYRICS:

You’ll take my life but I’ll take yours too
You’ll fire your musket but I’ll run you through
So when you’re waiting for the next attack
You’d better stand there’s no turning back

The bugle sounds as the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As you plunge into a certain death

The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And as the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won’t live to fight another day

We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds takes my horse below

And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body’s numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan

Songs like this will immediately charge everyone. Well, this was of my taste.
Pray that your THROAT HAS NOT GOT BAD !!

Head banging to this one would cause my head rolling on the ground halfway through the song. So i just gave teenyweeny nod throughout.
Great energy and very well sung, George!

Hey….enjoyed listening to this…

Ayush actually stopped playing with his cars when he heard this and looked at the screen with a blank look -hahah! Think he is more used to his mother’s mellow numbers :P Finally, he started shaking his head which meant that he was enjoying the music.

BTW— just curious, what scale is this? (as per the western notation :-))))))

now we know why Bruce is special.
Tough song, very good singing indeed. Of all I heard from you I guess “Money(pink floyd)” is the best.
I personally feel your voice is much better in soft romantic tracks than in a out an out metal tracks. Metal demands a harsher voice. but then even “your” so-so performance sets a marks which is seldom crossed.
Why not try Sabbath. It might be fun.
