Battle of Bull Run

Subject: US Civil War, Music: Julian Peters, Lyrics: Kelly Hoglund and Tim Donderevo, Vocals: Kelly Hoglund

The soldiers marched on without rest
What moral courage they possessed
Through blazing sun to meet their end
To Centreville, I marched with them

Amid the roar of musketry
The bodies fell on battlefield
No bandages nor brandy stems
The blood of fallen Union - men

O Missus B. - how can it be - I'll never see - my darling boy again

Lay down the cross, take up the crown
For soon shall you sleep in Jesus my dear

Rebels fire upon our line
Brave boys fall, brave men die
I try in vain to save their lives
The hour is late, the end is nigh

Along the lines - beyond the fire - the dimming eyes - turn upward to the sky

Lay down the cross, take up the crown
For soon shall you sleep in Jesus my dear

O that I could fight and die with you
Heal every wound and rise with you
But as I sit here and comfort you
You're only a ghost in my arms
Fading away in my arms
