lyrics

Let me tell you a little story about a boy and girl
Who found a bit of love in this great big world
Alright. Alright.
And they grew up fast and set their minds to gettin' hitched
And they both said "I do" back in sixty-six
Alright. Alright.
Well life ain't easy and times got rough
But when you've got someone to love it's more than enough
Alright. Alright.
And he told her, "One day, no matter what goes down,
We're both very lucky for the love we have found."
Alright. Alright.

He said, "We'll be alright, we'll be
Alright."
He said, "We'll see it through to the other side, we'll see it through
To the other side."

Well old Uncle Sam he came a-callin' for war
And he packed up his things and quit his job at the store
Alright. Alright.
And you've heard the story told at least a thousand times
He held her in his arms and they both started cryin'
Alright. Alright.
He said, "Girl, I don't pretend to know what awaits me over there,
But I'm pretty damn sure that I'm in for a scare."
Alright. Alright.
"But I want you to know that I know that you're here
And as long as that's true then there's no need to fear."
Alright. Alright.

He said, "I'll be alright, I'll be
Alright."
He said, "I'll see you on the other side, I'll see you on
On the other side."

Well it was just about a year before she heard the news
And she opened that letter back in seventy-two
Alright. Alright.
It said, "Ma'am, we're very sorry but your husband is lost..."
And "...sometimes this freedom it comes at a cost."
Alright. Alright.
"Attached is a note that he gave to a friend,
He wrote it for you right before the end."
Alright. Alright.
It said, "If I die from some mortal wound,
I love you, Babe, and I'll see you soon!"
Alright. Alright.

He said, "You'll be alright, you'll be
Alright."
He said, "I'll see you on the other side, I'll see you on
On the other side."

He said, "We'll be alright, we'll be
Alright."
He said, "We'll see you on the other side, we'll see you on
On the other side."

about

The Olde Souls and the Makeshift Band Columbus, Ohio

Tired of playing boring gigs to bored audiences, a pair of singer-songwriters/lifelong friends decided to join forces and start a band. Assembling a cast of friends around them they formed the Epic (read: Pretentious) Folk group "The Olde Souls". They may never be famous, they may never find their music in regular rotation on radio, but they'll be sure to entertain, and have a good time doing it. ... more
