Song Lyric Sunday

Using the military theme I have chosen a favorite of my childhood.  We marched from our school to the cemetery, each waving a small United States flag.  We sang this song and other military themes as we went to place the flags on the grave sites.  This yearly tradition gave us, even as children, respect for the fallen.

This song was composed in 1863 by Patrick Gilmore.  This version by Mitch Miller.
