Words and Music by Harvey Herman.

A maiden's heart is broken, she is in misfortune's grasp,
Her last hope is now gone, her happiness is past;
Her sweetheart fell in the battle of Santiago;
She had hoped fate would spare her sweetheart, but no, no, no.

He is now riding in a glorious chariot above,
Not drawn by steeds of war, but by mystery of peace and love;
His deeds are shining in the history of life
With a brilliancy that can only be won in battle strife.

She implored him not to respond to the President's call,
That by accident, illness, or in battle he surely would fall;
He pressed her to his noble heart and whispered. It is quite true,
But duty calls me for my country, humanity, and for you.-Cho.

His poor, aged mother has died of a broken heart;
Her prayers were that from her home he would not depart;
He was the only support she had had for many a year;
He gave up all this world holds dear, all this world holds dear.-Cho.
