    The Snipers Promise

    The night was icy cold I was alone
    I was waiting for an army foot patrol
    And when at last they came into my sight
    I squeezed the trigger of my armalite

    Well a shot rang out I heard a soldier cry
    Oh please don't leave me here alone to die
    And I realized his patrol had gone away
    And had left their wounded comrade for me to slay

    Oh mama, oh mama comfort me
    For I know these awful things have got to be
    But when the war for freedom has been won
    Oh I promise you I'll put away my gun

    There's nothing in this world I would not give
    If there's mеrcy in your heart you let me livе
    And in his eyes I saw a look of pain
    As the muzzle of my gun moved towards his brain

    Oh mama, oh mama comfort me
    For I know these awful things have got to be
    But when the war for freedom has been won
    Oh I promise you I'll put away my gun

    The dawn was breaking as I reached my base
    I will not forget the look on that boys face
    Fear, Agony and torment were all there
    Oh but to your memory mother his life I spared

    Oh mama, oh mama comfort me
    For I know these awful things have got to be
    But when the war for freedom has been won
    Oh I promise you I'll put away my gun

    Oh but when the war for freedom has been won
    Oh I promise you I'll put away my gun
