Just Before the Battle Mother chords
George F. Root 1862

A DJust before the battle, mother,
E A EI am thinking most of you
A DWhile upon the field we're watching,
E Awith the enemy in view.
DComrades brave are 'round me lying,
E A Efilled with thoughts of home and God
A DFor well they know that on the morrow,
E Asome will sleep beneath the sod.
A DFarewell, mother, you may never,
E A Epress me to your breast again
A DBut, oh, you'll not forget me, mother,
E Aif I'm numbered with the slain.
A DOh, I long to see you, mother,
E A Eand the loving ones at home
A DBut I'll never leave our banner,
E Atill in honor I can come.
D Tell the traitors all around you,
E A Ethat their cruel words we know
A DIn every battle kill our soldiers,
E Aby the help they give the foe.
A DFarewell, mother, you may never,
E A Epress me to your breast again
A DBut, oh, you'll not forget me, mother,
E Aif I'm numbered with the slain.
A DHark! I hear the bugles sounding,
E A'Tis the signal for the fight,
DNow, may God protect us, mother,
E A Eas He ever does the right.
A DHear the "Battle-Cry of Freedom,"
E Ahow it swells upon the air
DOh, yes, we'll rally 'round the standard,
E Aor we'll perish nobly there.
A DFarewell, mother, you may never,
E A Epress me to your breast again
A DBut, oh, you'll not forget me, mother,
E Aif I'm numbered with the slain.
