The Soldier Boy and the Girl at Home
A brave soldier boy lying wounded at the end of a battles fray.
His thoughts were of home and loved ones, so many miles away
He wondered if they were thinking of him braving the shot and shell
And if she who said she loved him loved him tonight as well.
A soldier boy who fought for his country’s flag
Fought bravely and well but wounded he fell at close of the day
The girl at home while waiting for his return
Was thinking of him and of their wedding day, when he came home to stay.
His sweetheart so anxiously waited for news of the boys who fall
She prays that he’ll be guarded, by him who watches o’er all
She loves him she knows and wait his return she’ll meet him at the door
And with smiles and kisses greet him after the war is o’er.
