Blood Upon The Risers / 공수병의 노래(피투성이 낙하산)

"밴드오브브라더즈"의 텔레비젼 씨리즈 9편에 나오는 "공수병의 노래"를 이리저리 구글링해보다가, 영어 제목을 알게되었고, 위키에서 가사를 따온다. 한 블로그 에서 한국어로된 번역을 볼 수 있다. 그리고 미국 육군사관학교 웨스트 포인트 전우회 사이트에서 노래를 들을 수 있다.

He was just a rookie trooper and he surely shook with fright,
as he checked off his equipment and made sure his pack was tight;
He had to sit and listen to those awful engines roar,
"You ain't gonna jump no more!"
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna jump no more!
"Is everybody happy?" said the Sergeant looking up,
Our Hero feebly answered "Yes," and then they stood him up;
He jumped into the icy blast, his static line unhooked,
And he ain't gonna jump no more.
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna jump no more!
He counted long, he counted loud, he waited for the shock,
He felt the winds, he felt the clouds, he felt the awful drop,
The silk from his reserve spilled out and wrapped around his legs,
And he ain't gonna jump no more.
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna jump no more!
The risers wrapped around his neck, connectors cracked his dome,
Suspension lines were tied in knots around his skinny bones;
The canopy became his shroud; he hurtled to the ground.
And he ain't gonna jump no more.
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna jump no more!
The days he'd lived and loved and laughed kept running through his mind,
He thought about the girl back home, the one he'd left behind;
He thought about the medics and he wondered what they'd find,
And he ain't gonna jump no more.
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna jump no more!
The ambulance was on the spot, the jeeps were running wild,
The medics jumped and screamed with glee, rolled up their sleeves and smiled,
For it had been a week or more since last a 'chute had failed,
And he ain't gonna jump no more.
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna jump no more!
He hit the ground, the sound was "Splat!," his blood went spurting high,
His comrades then were heard to say: "A hell of a way to die!"
He lay there rolling round in the welter of his gore,
And he ain't gonna jump no more.
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna jump no more!

(slowly, solemnly)

There was blood upon the risers, there were brains upon the chute,
Intestines were a'dangling from his Paratrooper suit,
He was a mess, they picked him up, and poured him from his boots,
And he ain't gonna jump no more
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain't gonna jump no more!

The chorus can also be sung in this 'uncensored' version:

Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die
With a rifle up your ass and a bullet in your eye
Gory, gory what a hell of a way to die
When your balls hang lower then your paratrooper boots
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die
With a rifle in your hand, and you're falling through the sky
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die
He ain't gonna jump no more!

The final chorus is (rarely) changed alternately to:

(solemly sing)

They placed him in a blanket, then they laid his soul to rest
They notified his next of kin; his funeral was the best
And on his monument of stone they scribed this little verse:
He ain't gonna jump no more
Gory, Gory, what a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, what a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, what a helluva way to die
He ain't, gonna jump, no more...

Or:

Beautiful streamer please open for me
Blue skies above me and no canopy
I counted ten thousand, waited too long
Reached for my ripcord and the handle was gone
Gory, Gory, what a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, what a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, what a helluva way to die
He ain't, gonna jump, no more...
