lyrics

In the spring of 1864
I received my final breath on the furthest shore
With an end in sight I wrote my letter stained in blood
To the lady to whom I loved

Chorus:
Shoulder to shoulder we stood
So side by side we lay as we should
As my strength falls from me
Bury me under the old oak tree
And forget about me

A good life is to die well
So in this letter of my life I must tell
I'm crafting these words of a long farewell
May we meet in heaven or hell
For this will be the final story I tell

<CHORUS>

Born the burden of the ultimate price
The work of death does not look twice
If so it must be
I will die in victory
Under the moon of Montgomery

<CHORUS>

I was a casualty of war
Like so many boys before
You loved much and lost all
When you received my dying call
But I'll have you know I stood tall

<CHORUS>
