Michelle Shocked - Shaking Hands Lyrics

  • Michelle Shocked
  • (Poly Gram Songs, Inc)
  • Shaking hands and fingers that do tremble
  • Soldier's joy has been a bitter pill
  • Though in battle a brave man I resemble
  • Alone I am a coward without will
  • Here's McGee from the great state of Missouri
  • To the Show-Me State Militia I belong
  • And to judge from the pride on the Confederate side
  • I'd say five hundred thousand rebels can't be wrong
  • A rebel stand is no place for a traitor
  • A loveless union cannot bend us to her will
  • Cannot command the soldiers who now hate her
  • Nor demand a bounty of her generals
  • I took a rifle ball in my shoulder
  • But my entire body filled with pain
  • I waited with them all at the field hospital
  • Oh God, another shot of morphine
  • Soldier's joy, oh what's the point in pleasure
  • When it's only meant to kill the pain
  • Lay down my arms and take the coffin's measure
  • Or take up arms and send me out to fight again
  • Shaking hands -- Was I a coward, was I brave?
  • Shaking hands -- I took the bitter pill
  • Tell the story on my grave, my soul they could not save
  • What the bullet could not kill, the needle will
