Dear-est love, do you re-mem-ber When we last did meet, How you told me that your loved me, Kneel-ing at my feet?

Oh! how proud you stood be-fore me, In your suit of blue, When you vow'd to me and country, Ev-er to be true.

When this cruel war is ov-er, Praying! that we meet a-gain. When this cruel war is ov-er, Praying! that we meet a-gain. When this cruel war is ov-er, Praying! that we meet a-gain.

2.

When the summer breeze is sighing, Mournfully, along! Or when autumn leaves are falling, Sadly breathes the song. Oft in dreams I see thee lying On the battle plain, Lonely, wounded, even dying; Calling, but in vain. CHORUS. Weeping, sad &-c.

3. If amid the din of battle, Nobly you should fall, Far away from those who love you, None to hear you call. Who would whisper words of comfort, Who would soothe your pain? Ah! the many cruel fancies Ever in my brain. CHORUS. Weeping, sad, &-c.

4. But our country called you, darling, Angels cheer your way. While our nation's sons are fighting, We can only pray. Nobly strike for God and liberty, Let all nations see How we love our starry banner, Emblem of the free. CHORUS. Weeping, sad, &-c.
