William H. Morris, 1862

We parted with a cheerful smile,
When last I press'd her hand,
To follow to the battlefield
|: The Banner of our Land, :|
Her glowing glance in memory
Unceasingly will burn
Chorus:
|: For well I know she will bestow, :|
|: For well I know she will bestow
The same when I return! :|
2. When gazing at the glimm'ring stars,
And resting on the ground,
While soldiers, wearied by the march,
|: Are slumbering around, :|
How oft, to hold that little hand,
And here her vows I yearn
Chorus:
