Who Will Care for Mother Now?
(Charles Sawyer)

Why am I so weak and weary?
See how faint my heated breath,
All around to me seems darkness,
Tell me, comrades, is this death?
     Ah! how well I know your answer,
     To my fate I meekly bow,
     If you'll only tell me  truly,
     Who will care for mother now?

cho: Soon with angels I'll be marching
     With bright laurels on my brow;
     I have for my country fallen,
     Who will care for mother now?

Who will comfort her in sorrow?
Who will dry the falling tear?
Gently smooth he wrinkled forehead?
Who will whisper words of cheer?
     Even now I think I see her
     Kneeling, praying for me! How
     Can I leave her in anguish
     Who will care for mother now?

Let this knapsack be my pillow,
And my mantle be the sky.
Hasten, comrades to the battle
I will like a soldier die.
     Soon with angels I'll be marching
     With bright laurels on my brow;
     I have for my country fallen,
     Who will care for mother now?

                                                 apr96
