Mother, I've Come Home to Die.

Dear mother, I remember well the parting kiss you gave to me,
 When merry rang the village-bell, my heart was full of joy and glee;

I did not dream that one short year would crush the hopes that soared so high;

Oh! mother dear, draw near to me, dear mother, I've come home to die.

 Call sister, brother to my side,
 And take your soldiers last good-bye, good-bye;
 Oh! mother dear, draw near to me.
 Dear mother, I've come home to die.

Hark!-mother 'tis the village-bell, I can no longer with you stay;
 My country calls-to arms! to arms! the foe advances in fierce array!
 The vision's past-I feel that now for country I can only sigh,

Oh! mother dear, draw near to me, dear mother, I've come home to die.-Cho.

 Dear mother, sister, brother, all-one parting kiss-to all-good-bye!
 Weep not! but clasp your hand in mine, and let me like a soldier die;
 I've met the foe upon the field, where kindred fiercely did defy;
 I fought for right-God bless the flag! dear mother, I've come home to die.-Cho
