Cape Henry, Cape Henry
Battle field on fire
On water, white water
With them flames climbing higher
We fired our cannons
For at least two hours or more
Cape Henry, Cape Henry
That old Virginia shore

Well I served as a sailor
It was back in '81
I can't say that I'm sorry
I volunteered for what I done
We trained and we waited
But we would not be outdone
Then one day, six battle ships
Came out of the rising sun

So we all manned our stations
yeah we passed a jug of wine
We waited in patience
Waited for a sign
First thunder, then lightning
Then a ringing in my ear
I can still hear that screaming
Even after all these years

Cape Henry, Cape Henry
Battle field on fire
On water, white water
With them flames climbing higher
We fired our cannons
For at least two hours or more
Cape Henry, Cape Henry
That old Virginia shore

Our deck was in tatters
That smoke was think and black
For each shot that they fired
We fired two right back
Then up in my shoulder
Something knocked me down
The last I remember was that water all around

Cape Henry, Cape Henry
Battle field on fire
On water, white water
With them flames climbing higher
We fired our cannons
For at least two hours or more
Cape Henry, Cape Henry
That old Virginia shore

So I woke up in Richmond
With a medal on my chest
I know that I earned it
Cause I know that I done my best
We did lose that battle
But I heard we won the war
So I headed back home to
Recieve my reward

I plow this man's field now
From morning until night
That war took my left arm
I'm working with my right
I guess I fought for the freedom
Of richer men up north
But I still fight for something
This plow goes back and forth

Cape Henry, Cape Henry
Battle field on fire
Hunt water, white water
With them flames climbing higher
We fired our cannons
For at least two hours or more
Cape Henry, Cape Henry
That old Virginia shore
