Charlie Boy Lyrics

The Lumineers - Charlie Boy

 

Charlie boy don't go to war first born in forty–four

Kennedy made him believe we could do much more

 

Ohhh ooh ooh ooh

Ohhh ooh ooh ooh

 

Lillian don't hang your head love should make you feel good

In uniform you raised a man who volunteered to stand

 

Ohhh ooh ooh ooh

Ohhh ooh ooh ohh

 

Play the bugle play the taps and

Make your mothers proud

Raise your rifles to the sky boys

Fire that volley loud

 

News was bad on upland ave metuchen mourn our loss

Sons rebelled while fathers yelled and mothers clutched the cross

 

Ohhh ooh ooh ooh

Ohhh ooh ooh ooh

 

Play the bugle play the taps and

Make your mothers proud

Raise your rifles to the sky boys

Fire that volley loud
