At Gettysburg

MISS ANNABEL LEE I SEND THESE WORDS 
I KNOW YOU WONDER WHERE I AM
THE BOYS HAVE COME HOME LONG AGO 
NOT ONE OF THEM A WHOLE MAN
THE WALKING WOUNDED OF THE LAND 
THE WALKING WOUNDED OF THE LAND.

MY ONE TRUE LOVE I KNOW YOU PRAYED 
I’D BE AMONG THE CARAVAN OF BOYS 
RETURNING FROM THE WAR 
WITH REMNANTS OF THE MARCHING BAND
SURVIVORS OF OUR PROUD COMMAND - SURVIVORS OF OUR PROUD COMMAND.

WE HAD OUR CAROLINA DAYS BEFORE THAT BLOODY CIVIL WAR
I WON YOUR HEART IN CHARLOTTE AND LOST MY SOUL AT GETTYSBURG
 THEY SAY I DIED AT GETTYSBURG.
 
MISS ANNABEL LEE WE FACED OUR FEARS 
ON THE SMOKEY BATTLEFIELD
OUR REGIMENT OF FARMER BOYS 
WITH BAYONETS AND BLOOD TO SPILL
I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I COULD KILL 
I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I COULD KILL.

MY ONE TRUE LOVE WE MARCHED 
INTO THE DEADLY WAVES OF BATTLE HEAT
WITH GRAPESHOT FLYING EVERYWHERE 
THE FALLEN UNDERNEATH OUR FEET
THE TRUMPETS SOUNDED THE RETREAT 
THE TRUMPETS SOUNDED THE RETREAT.

WE HAD OUR CAROLINA DAYS BEFORE THAT BLOODY CIVIL WAR
I WON YOUR HEART IN CHARLOTTE AND LOST MY SOUL AT GETTYSBURG
THEY SAY I DIED AT GETTYSBURG.
 
MISS ANNABEL LEE I THOUGHT OF YOU 
AS PICKETT RALLIED US AROUND
FOR ONE MORE CHARGE ON UP THE HILL 
WE HAD TO TAKE THE HIGHER GROUND
BUT I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I’D GO DOWN 
I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I’D GO DOWN.

MY ONE TRUE LOVE I CALLED YOUR NAME 
AS THE SURGEONS TRIED TO SAVE MY LIFE
DID YOU HEAR ME CALLING YOU   
TO COME TO ME   TO BE MY WIFE
TOO MANY DIED UNDER THE KNIFE 
TOO MANY DIED UNDER THE KNIFE.

WE HAD OUR CAROLINA DAYS BEFORE THAT BLOODY CIVIL WAR
I WON YOUR HEART IN CHARLOTTE AND LOST MY SOUL AT GETTYSBURG
THEY SAY I DIED AT GETTYSBURG.
 
MISS ANNABEL LEE I SEND THESE WORDS 
SO YOU WON’T WONDER WHERE I AM
THE BOYS THAT CAME HOME LONG AGO 
PICK ONE OF THEM TO BE YOUR MAN
THE FUTURES IN YOUR CHILDRENS HANDS 
THE FUTURES IN YOUR CHILDRENS HANDS
