  • Hey Mr. Custer,
    Why do you dare the hand of fate?
    The claw of death waits to grab
    A golden medal, your honor idolized
    Your heart is stone, your blood is iced

    Ceaseless rifle fire
    Blowing your dreams away
    The barrels are running hot
    What a painful bloody day

    Last fight at little big horn
    The hand of death was waiting
    To take the soldier blue away
    Last fight at little big horn
    Where the last command was given
    And all the soldiers fought in vain

    The soldiers are riding, unprepared for the attack
    A touch of death, the shotguns crack
    The blood is flowing, the desert sand turns red
    Why did you lead them to this trap?

    Ceaseless rifle fire
    Blowing your dreams away
    The barrels are running hot
    What a painful bloody day

    Last fight at little big horn
    The hand of death was waiting
    To take the soldier blue away
    Last fight at little big horn
    Where the last command was given
    And all the soldiers fought in vain Writer/s: GERRY MULLIGAN
