Words by Thomas J. O'Douohue. Music by Richard L. Wearer.

While standing in the moonlight, my gallant love and I,
He told me that he loved me. and then he said good-bye;
He left our glorious country to free the one oppressed.
And the Stars and Stripes Of Liberty I pinned upon his breast.

My love in the battle fell, fighting for liberty.
He joined the Cuban heroes to set their country free;
He kissed me in the moonlight before he Joined the rest.
And the Stars and Stripes of Liberty I pinned upon his breast.

While fighting with the Spaniards he was always in the fore.
My lover was the hero in battles o'er and o'er;
'Twas there the gallant hero of great athletic fame.
Gave up his life for freedom-shall heroes die in vain?-Chorus.

A dozen bullets pierced him, his life's blood ebbed away,
I know I love you, darling, were the last words he did say;
In distant lands of sunshine they've laid my love to rest.
And the Stars and Stripes of Liberty reposes on his breast.-Cho.
