Lyrics

He's No Soldier
For my great uncle Noel Ginn, a conscientious objector in WW2

He’s no soldier won’t bear no arms
He’s no fighter won’t do no harm
So they put him in jail, tied him to the rail, post no bail
They put him in jail, tied him to the rail, post no bail

Lived the wrong life for his time
Loved the wrong kind for days gone by
So they put him jail, tied him to the rail, post no bail
They put him in jail, tied him to the rail, post no bail

Don’t get too bold, do what you’re told
Toe the line and you’ll be fine

You’re no soldier don’t bear no arms
You’re no fighter don’t do no harm
Or they’ll put you in jail, tie you to the rail, post no bail
They’ll put you in jail, tie you to the rail
