Civil War Song

about

This track was written in the scope of an actual civil war letter I found that was addressed to Elizabeth.

lyrics

We came through Raleigh, now off to Gettysburg
I heard shots in the valley so I wrote you down these words

I travel in the 4th Regiment, my brother's by my side
Our captain banned our liquor, now I'm trying to get by

Miss Elizabeth, I can still see your dark brown eyes
Miss Elizabeth, this could be the last time I write
Yeah I'm nervous I can't lie, and if you don't hear from me
Tell my mother it's alright
I'm at the edge of the fight, and if you don't hear from me
I'll meet you in heaven when I die

My brother he's been sick, he's coughing through the night
He's got nine months of service till he's home to see his wife

Miss Elizabeth, I can still see your dark brown eyes
Miss Elizabeth, this could be the last time I write
Yeah I'm nervous I can't lie, and if you don't hear from me
Tell my mother it's alright
I'm at the edge of the fight, and if you don't hear from me
I'll meet you in heaven when I die
