John Mcdermott - The Faded Coat Of Blue Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • My brave lad sleeps in his faded coat of blue;
  • In a lonely grave unknown lies the heart that beat so true
  • He sank faint and hungry among the famishd brave
  • And they laid him sad and lonely within his nameless grave
  • No more the bugle calls the weary one,
  • Rest, noble spirit,
  • In thy grave unknown! Ill find you and know you,
  • Among the good and true,
  • When a robe of white is givn for the faded coat of blue
  • He cried, give me water and just a little crumb,
  • And my mother she will bless you thro all the years to come;
  • Oh! tell my sweet sister, so gentle, good and true,
  • That Ill meet her up in heaven, in my faded coat of blue.
  • No more the bugle calls the weary one,
  • Rest, noble spirit,
  • In thy grave unknown! Ill find you and know you,
  • Among the good and true,
  • When a robe of white is givn for the faded coat of blue
  • Long, long years have vanished, and though he comes no more,
  • Yet my heart will startling beat with each footfall at my door;
  • I gaze oer the hill where he waved a last adieu,
  • But no gallant lad I see, in his faded coat of blue.
  • No more the bugle calls the weary one,
  • Rest, noble spirit,
  • In thy grave unknown! Ill find you and know you,
  • Among the good and true,
  • When a robe of white is givn for the faded coat of blue
  • No more the bugle calls the weary one,
  • Rest, noble spirit,
  • In thy grave unknown! Ill find you and know you,
  • Among the good and true,
  • When a robe of white is givn for the faded coat of blue
