O, never mind, boys! raise me up once again;
Let me gaze on the battle-flag, once ere I go.
That flag was not carried by us, boys, in vain,
For it waves o’er the ramparts we took from the foe.
There are those who will mourn for me, boys, as you know,
And among them, is one who is dearer than all;
But tell her I fell in front of the foe,
And then, if she grieves, she’ll be proud of my fall.
God help you, my comrades! God guard ;you all well!
Boys, keep the old colors in front of the fray,
And always remember your brothers who fell,
When we planted that flag on the ramparts to-day.
