WHEN THE ROSES BLOOM AGAIN

In a far and distant city
Where the roses bloom so fair
There is a soldier who is faithful kind and
true
And his thoughts are always drifting
As she stooped and gently kissed him
And she pinned a rose upon his coat of blue.

When the roses bloom again beside the river
The robins they s ing one glad refrain
In the days of olden times
I’ l be with you sweet heart mine
I’ll be with you when the roses bloom gain.

In the rattle of the battle
Came an murmur soft and low
From soldier who is fallen in the field
I am dying, Captain, dying
For I know that I must go
But I wait to murmur ‘ere I pass away

When the roses, ect.------
