The Warfare is Raging
6 When you're standing on the picket Some cold winter day, Them red rosy cheeks They will all fade away.
Them red rosy cheeks,
That grieves my heart so.
Won't you let me go with you ?
O Yes, my love, Yes.
The refrain is repeated after each stanza, the third line of the stanza in each case forming the first line of the refrain.
