Bright Sunny South
- 55 Views
From the bright sunny South to the war, I was sent Ere the days of my boyhood, I scarcely had spent From it's cool shady forests and deep flowing streams Ever fond in my mem'ry and sweet in my dreams Oh, my dear little sister, I still see her tears When I had to leave home in our tender years And my sweet gentle mother, so dear to my heart It grieved me sincerely when we had to part Said my kind-hearted father as he took my hand "As you go in defense of our dear native land Son, be brave but show mercy whenever you can Our hearts will be with you, 'til you return again" In my bag there's a bible to show me the way Through my trials year on earth and to Heaven some day I will shoulder my musket and brandish my sword In defense of this land and the word of the Lord
