Lauren Higbie - Veteran's Last Song Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I am standing on the summit
  • Of a century of years
  • That has measured the life of our nation,
  • And I sabered down the mountain
  • A flood of blood and tears
  • That was she'd for our country's salvation.
  • And I see a mighty legion, who for a nation's life
  • Would forfeit young manhood's fresh glory,
  • And I see a mighty legion who pitted in the strife
  • Now sleeping in garments stiff and gory.
  • And where going soon to meet them in the bivouac of the soul,
  • As the shadows around us give warning,
  • And I want to see my comrades when the angels call the Roll,
  • All are ready for inspection in the morning.
  • We where boys when we enlisted, and these wrinkled brows where clear,
  • And our eyes where not dimmed in their vision,
  • And the frost that never melts had not fallen on our hair,
  • And our step had not lost it's precision.
  • But the years have built their terraces on every comrades brow,
  • And age made our weary limbs quiver,
  • And the frost was falling thick and we landed ever quick
  • To the camp that is over the river.
  • And where going soon to meet them in the bivouac of the soul
  • As the shadows around us give warning,
  • And I want to see my comrades when the angels call the Roll,
  • All are ready for inspection in the morning.
