A Soldier's Silent Night (Bumped)

I posted this last year but it's too good not to post every year. This is what should be playing on all the radio stations instead of all that "Rockin' Shoppin' Xmas" crap they play ten time a day.

A Soldier's Silent Night

'Twas The Night Before Christmas,
He Lived All Alone,
In A One Bedroom House
Made Of Plaster And Stone.

I Had Come Down The Chimney
With Presents To Give,
To See Just Who
In This Dwelling Did Live.

I Looked All Around
A Strange Sight To See,
No Tinsel, No Presents,
Not Even A Tree.

No Stocking From The Mantle,
Just Boots Filled With Sand,
On The Wall Hung Pictures
Of Far Distant Lands.

With Medals And Badges,
Awards Of Every Kind,
A Sobering Thought Came Alive In My Mind

This House Was Different,
It Was Dark, It Was Dreary,
I Have Found The Home Of A Soldier,
I Can See That Most Clearly.


Read the rest of the lyrics while you listen to an absolutely awesome recording here. This is an obvious adaptation of "Merry Christmas, My Friend," which I posted here, but it's very well done. Blackfive has more information here.

If the link I've posted quits working please email me or leave a comment and I'll either locate a new link or make the recording available on my site.

Note: I hate to have to do it but I'm turning on comment and trackback moderation. If you post a legitimate trackback or comment I'll do my best not to be too slow about approving it. If the only reason you're here is to advertise your porn, music, or penis enhancement site you can kiss my sweet ass.

Hey Bill, In case I don't talk to you before Sunday, have a very Merry Christmas with your family! Create some great memories!
