Comin' from the War


Published by Chas.Magnus, 12 Frankfort St., N.Y.

Comin’ From The War.

If a body meet a body
With a sword and gun,
If a body greet a body
Need a body run?
If the lad who loves me dearly
Comes to say good-bye,
Since he’s gone to fight for freedom,
Need a body cry?

Among the ranks there is a swain,
A youth I love full well;
That he will fight for truth and right,
I’m not ashamed to tell,
Every lassie has her laddie,
Sad and proud am I;
Mine has gone to serve his country,
Fight, and maybe, die.

If a body meet a body
Comin’ from the war,
If a body kiss a body
Need a body scare?
If the town are lookin’ on,
Nothing care would I,
I’d kiss him in the face of all,
Kiss, and maybe, cry.
