Leaves from the vine
Falling so slow
Like fragile tiny shells
Drifting in the foam
Little soldier boy
Come marching home
Brave soldier boy
Comes marching home

Those leaves did grow
From branches overgrown
Drifting slowly down
Resting on the loam
Little soldier boy
Taken from home
Forced to fight a war
That's not his own

Leaves from the vine
Falling so slow
Like fragile tiny shells
Drifting in the foam
Little soldier boy says
"Carry me home"
Sleeping soldier boy
Is carried home
i love this song ^^

The truth behind this song is that many young boys were taken from home to fight for an angry country... And never returned. (Sleeping)

I cry every time.

Iroh is actually one of my favourite Avatar characters. He's so kind and full of joy and understanding. When I saw this short tale of bei shang sa and him singing this song on his son's grave I started to cry :) This song is just beautiful

Wow thanks that is really helpful for me!

I'll be cosplaying Iroh soon, time frame based upon funds available lol, and my friend asked me to sing this while in cosplay and I went hunting for the full version because I wanted to know if it existed more than just what was sung in the show.

No he doesn't do the "full" version because the "full" version was fanmade, after hearing the custom piece (Written for Mako) on A:TLA

Sweet jesus, I can hardly handle this part. When he can't sing because he's sobbing too hard...I can't...the emotion in his voice was so raw and real ;^; the fact that even though he's been through such a horrible ordeal, he still went out of his way to help the villagers just makes it more heartbreaking. He's always so wise and calm and composed, seeing him cry was...unbearable. :ohnoes:

One of the reasons it may have been so heart breaking and real was because Mako sang the song knowing that he was going to die soon :c

This stupid song makes me cry every time. Seriously, this is about the 17th time I've listened to it, and it makes me bawl like a baby. Iroh is my favorite on Avatar, by far. He is a changed man and does not deserve such sadness in his life. Even when he was "evil" (On the wrong side is a better way to say it) he was thinking of those he loved- sending gifts home, and such. He makes such impacts on others lives. He is such a miracle and a blessing. And still, he had to be hurt in such a way to get there. It makes me want to cry, but I'm already crying, so that's taken care of.
