Cuban Soldier

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

June Carter:
Far away in a Spanish dungeon
A Cuban soldier lay
Slowly dying from the torture
Inflicted day by day

He begged to send a message
But this kindness was denied
So he called his comrades to him
And he told this story ere he died

Chorus:
When Cubie gains her freedom
And the Spaniards cease to reign
There’s a loved one on that island
I will never see again

June:
Go find her for me, comrades
And tell her you were by my side
And I bid you take this message
To a soldier’s promised bride

It ‘tis the same old story comrades
Love weeps when duty is done
When Cubie was struggling for her freedom
I was ordered to my guns

Though I’m a captain dying
The struggle will soon be o’er
Tell her I said to meet me
Where the soldiers fight no more

Chorus:
When Cubie gains her freedom
And the Spaniards cease to reign
There’s a loved one on that island
I will never see again

June:
Go find her for me, comrades
And tell her you were by my side
And I bid you take this message
To a soldier’s promised bride

And I bid you take this message
To a soldier’s promised bride
