Tenting Tonight on the Old Camp-Ground
(Walter Kittredge)

We're tenting tonight on the old camp-ground
Give us a song to cheer
Our weary hearts, a song of home
And friends we love so dear.

cho: Many are the hearts that are weary tonight
     Wishing for the war to cease,
     Many are the hearts looking for the right
     To see the dawn of peace.
     Tenting tonight, tenting tonight
     Tenting on the old camp-ground.

We've been tenting tonight on 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 !"
cho:

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.

cho:

We've been fighting today on the old camp-ground, .
Many are lying near ;
Some are dead, and some are dying,
Many are in tears.

final cho:     Many are the hearts that are weary tonight,
               Wishing for the war to cease;
               Many are the hearts looking for the light,
               To see the dawn of peace.
               Dying tonight, dying tonight,
               Dying on the old camp-ground.
