Bugles are calling from prairie to shore, Sign up and fall in and march off to war; Drums beating loudly, hearts beating proudly March blue and gray and smile as you go.

Smoke hides the valleys and fire paints the plains, Loud roar the cannons till ruin remains; Blue grass and cotton burnt and forgotten All hope seems gone so, soldier, march on to die.

Count all the crosses and count all the tears, These are the losses and sad souvenirs; This devastation once was a nation So fall the dice, how high is the price.

There in the distance a flag I can see, Scorched and in ribbons but whose can it be; How ends the story, whose is the glory, Ask if we dare our comrades out there who sleep.

Count all the crosses and count all the tears, These are the losses and sad souvenirs; This devastation once was a nation So fall the dice, how high is the price we pay.

From http://morricone.topcities.com/lyrics/frame.html

Lyrics to The Story of A Soldier as concepted
by Tommie Connor:

Bugles are calling
from prairie to shore,
"Sign up" and "Fall in"
and march off to war.
Drums beating loudly,
Hearts beating proudly
March Blue and Grey
And smile as you say Goodbye.
Smoke hides the valleys
And fire paints the plains.
Loud roar the cannons
'Til ruin remains:
Blue grass and cotton
Burnt and forgotten
All hope seems gone
So soldier march on to die.
There in the distance
A flag I can see,
Scorched and in ribbons
But whose can it be;
How ends the story,
Whose is the glory,
Ask if we dare
Our comrades out there who sleep.


Lyrics to The Story of A Soldier as sung:

Bugles are calling from prairie to shore,
"Sign up" and "Fall In" and march off to war.
Blue grass and cotton, burnt and forgotten
All hope seems gone so soldier march on to die.
Bugles are calling from prairie to shore,
"Sign up" and "Fall In" and march off to war.
There in the distance a flag I can see,
Scorched and in ribbons but whose can it be,
How ends the story, whose is the glory
Ask if we dare, our comrades out there who sleep.

Thanks Cusser maybe you should post an addendum to the FAQ listing on IMDB where I copied the lyrics to post here, of what is actually sung.

I found this on Youtube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wn4FcI7Ph4I

it is an extended version of "The Story of a Soldier," with an extra stanza of lyrics. Once you have clicked the link and are on the  Youtube page, click "Show More..." by the description, and the lyrics will drop down.

The description says this is "from a newer Italian album." This version is  5:37; the "older one" (ie. the only one I knew existed until 5 minutes ago) is 3:54.

Does anyone know what this new song/album is all about, and how it can be purchased?
Has a new album been released recently with lots of stuff that was never released before, or are the extra two minutes of this song the only new stuff that is previously unreleased?

Cigar unfortunately I am way more of a computer-idiot than most people think.  Which means I don't know how to do that.

Drink - the longer version of that track (listed on CD as 5:30) is on the 2001 release of Il Buono, il Brutto, il Cattivo complete soundtrack, GDM 7001.  This GDM 7001 track is also more understandible.  It may be on other sources as well.  I'm going to E-mail that track to you since I have it on the computer already as an MP3 file, it's over 6 MB.
