A Ballad For Major Tom


(Refrain)
Lo' the man who walks alone
The road to glory and fame.
Few have tried on their own
Sorrow's trail all they gain


One such man was Major Tom
A honorable militant was he
And by his side he carried integrity
Another faithful friend to him


A notion one day got to Tom
While he guarded those asleep
And looking up for divine answer
He slowly began to weep


(Refrain)
Lo' the man who walks alone
The road to glory and fame.
Few have tried on their own
Sorrow's trail all they gain


Morning came he walked alone
Longing to be more than he was
"I'm still a lowly Major," he said
"I want more as everyone else does."


Satisfied no longer with who he was
The life he thought he did love
He tossed it all carelessly away
Walking, looking at the heaven's above


(Refrain)
Lo' the man who walks alone
The road to glory and fame.
Few have tried on their own
Sorrow's trail all they gain


Those who had slept were now awoken
All watched as Major Tom departed
His boot marching speaking his leave
The road he'ld chosen upstarted


Dusk came, a canon roared ahead
Major Tom falling they did perceive
His body felled, they in silence wept
Glory for Major Tom was not to be


(Refrain)
Lo' the man who walks alone
The road to glory and fame.
Few have tried on their own
Sorrow's trail all they gain
