The Lumineers — Charlie Boy lyrics

[Verse]
Charlie boy, don't go to war, first born in forty - four
Kennedy made him believe we could do much more

Ohhh
Lillian, don't hang your head, love should make you feel good
In uniform you raised a man, who volunteered to stand

[Bridge]
Ohhh
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/the-lumineers-charlie-boy-lyrics.html ]
[Chorus]
Play the bugle, play the taps and
Make your mothers proud
Raise your rifles to the sky boys
Fire that volley loud

[Verse]
News was bad on upland ave., metuchen mourn our loss
Sons rebelled, while fathers yelled, and mothers clutched the cross

[Bridge]
Ohhh

[Chorus]
Play the bugle, play the taps and
Make your fathers proud
Raise your rifles to the sky boys
Fire that volley loud
