They sleep on the hill

Versions: #1#2#3#4
Where he's gone Elmer
that is left to die of fever
Where's Herman burned in mine.
Where are Tom and Bert
the first killed in a brawl
and the other dead came out of jail.
And what will become of Charley
who fell while working
flew and flew from the bridge on the road.
 
Sleeping, sleeping on the hill
sleeping, sleeping on the hill.
 
Where are Ella and Kate
death both in error
an abortion, the other of love.
And Maggie killed in a brothel
by petting an animal
Edith and consumed by a strange evil.
And Lizzie that after life
distance, and Britain
This was back in the palm of the earth.
 
Sleeping, sleeping on the hill
sleeping, sleeping on the hill.
 
Where are the generals
which takes pride in battle
cemeteries with crosses on the breast
where the children of war
parties for an ideal
for a scam, for a love gone wrong
have sent home
Their remains in the barriers
tied tight because they looked whole.
 
Sleeping, sleeping on the hill
sleeping, sleeping on the hill.
 
Where is the player Jones
that he was surprised by his ninety
and life would still play.
He offered that the face to the wind
the throat to the wine and never thought
not money, not to heaven or the.
He seems to feel
chatter still Filth
eat on the street in the wrong hours
seem to hear it again
tell the liquor merchant
"You buy what you sell it better?"

da correggere

hanno rimandato a casa
le loro spoglie nelle BANDIERE

ed anche la traduzione, altrimenti la strofa non ha senso
