Words by Elmer Ruan Coates, Music arranged by Septimus Winner.

Ladies, some one he my mother, then 'twill seem that I am home;
I'll imagine I'm a brother, bonus each familiar tone;
But I want a mother near me, with that heaven in her eye,
Ladies, some one be my mother, be my mother till I die.

Now I feel my wound is mortal,
Soon I'll breathe my parting sigh.
Ladies, some one be my mother,
Be my mother till I die.

Long before I was a soldier, long before I fought and bled.
In our cottage all the dear ones thus would gather round my bed.
Do not treat me as a stranger, let me feel a brother's tie;
One of you I want as mother, be my mother till I die.

Soon no wicked war will harm me;
Angels bringing peace ere nigh;
Ladies, some one be my mother,
be my mother till I die.
