Contents: The sound of the drum --
All the boys well in camp --
Until we are prepared for it --
Less fear in each passing day --
The God of battles is on our side --
So it is when one of us dies --
Wound up in love as by a cloak --
I never before knew what soldiering war --
I belong to General Lee's Army --
Our Brigade was in it good --
Fought well and was complimented --
Fallen in love on somebody else's plantation --
Hard, hard to be a good man --
Still the will is half the man --
Washington would have been in our possession --
Never yet did I see fellows run as they did --
Upon the verge of time I stand --
I am tired of this fighting --
Tell Mother, if I fall --
Let us not mourn as those who have no hope --
We can still weather this storm --
Blow, Gabriel, blow --
Valor and devotion could accomplish nothing.
