You packed your bags and shut the door,
You crossed the sea to fight a war,
You didn’t know just what would happen,
To yah,

Stepped in the dirt, boots on the ground,
And gunfire was the only sound,
And to yourself you whispered,
Hallelujah,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Every day and every night,
You walked the walk, you fought the fight,
You never saw the end in sight,
Now did yah.

The days awash in a haze of red,
The blood, the mud, too many dead,
Your weary soul was crying,
Hallelujah,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Too late to help, you hear a shot,
You know you’re in a deadly spot,
You never thought the day would come,
Now did yah,

Your brother falls down to the ground,
The enemy is all around,
And from your lips you scream a
Hallelujah,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You fought the fight till it was done,
You have to strength to carry on,
You thought it’d be much better back home,
Did yah,

You try each day, keep pushing through,
But the battle lives inside of you,
It’s a cold and it’s a broken,
Hallelujah,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
