I know this forum is for song lyrics but I'm desperate. Can anyone tell me where I can find a soundtrack for "Old Roman Soldier" by Gene Watson? Thank you.

Thanks for the reply but I am looking for a soundtrack of the song; not the song itself. I've searched for it online but haven't found it.

By habit, I posted the recording link for everyone to enjoy

I assumed https://daywind.com/music/my-gospel-roots/

was the "soundtrack" you were looking for.

Could you enlighten me as to the soundtrack you are referring to



Thanks

Nancy

Hi Another Guest



Here are the lyrics you asked for



Betrayed for thirty pieces of silver

Abused by the people He loved

Rejected by His own disciples

I know He still loved them because



Chorus

Jesus said Father forgive them

He was looking down on me

I'm an old Roman soldier

I stood at the foot of the tree



In His eyes I saw His compassion

On His cheeks the tracks of His tears

On His back the stripes that He suffered

In His side the wound from my spear



Chorus

I'm an old Roman soldier

I stood at the foot of the tree



<><><><>

Thanks, Nancy, but the Daywind link has Gene Watson's album containing this song but it is not a soundtrack. A soundtrack has the music but not the vocals unless there are some backup vocals. It's what people use to sing the song themselves, e.g., in church.

Ahhh The accompaniment track is what I know it as.
It's all a matter of semantics. Eh?
Looks like it's not readily available.
