TENTING ON THE OLD CAMP GRUOND.
Key of A.
We 're tenting to-night on the old camp-ground;
Give us a song to cheer Our weary hearts, a song of home
And friends we love so dear.
Chorus.óMany are the hearts that are weary to-night, Wishing for the war to cease; Many are the hearts looking for the light,
To see the dawn of peace. Tenting to-night, tenting to-night,
Tenting on the old camp-ground.
We Ve been tenting to-night en the old camp-ground,
Thinking of days gone by, Of the loved ones at home that gave us the hand,
And the tear that said "Good-by!"
Chorus.óMany are the hearts that are weary to-night, etc.
We are tired of war on the old camp-ground;
Many are the dead and gone Of the brave and true who've left their homes;
Others been wounded long.
Chorus.óMany are the hearts that are weary to-night, etc.
We 've been righting to-day on the old camp-ground,
Many are lying near; Some are dead, and some are dying,ó
Many are in tears.
Chorus.óMany are the hearts that are weary to-night, Wishing for the war to cease; Many are the hearts looking for the light,
To see the dawn of peace. Dying to-night, dying to-night,
Dying on the old camp-ground.
