The Trooper Lyrics

Play "The Trooper"
on Amazon Music

You'll take my life but I'll take yours, too
You'll fire you musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back

The bugle sounds as the charge begins
But on this...

    This song is based on an actual event and the alfred lord tennyson poem called the charge of the light brigade. During the crimean war (1853-1856) about 670 british cavalrymen charged russian artillery positions through what became known as the valley of death (balaclava, crimea). The troopers (cavalry soldiers) were torn apart by the russians. 118 troopers were killed and 127 wounded. The song is iron maiden at their best. Thus endeth your history lesson!
