Quite engaging!

OLD CEMETERY JUNKIE

When You Went Off To War

I didn’t know the day you left.

We would meet no more.

You were just a boy of nine.

When you went off to war.

You proudly bore the drums.

For our voluntary corps.

You were just a boy of nine.

When you went off to war.

Through long hard battles.

And soldiers’ injuries sore.

You were just a boy of nine.

When you went off to war.

You served your unit well.

Until you breathed no more.

You were just a boy of nine.

When you went off to war.

That battle took its toll.

Upon Unit Eighty Four.

You were just a boy of nine.

When you went off to war.

They placed your body in a grave.

In the uniform you wore.

You were just a boy of nine.

When you went off to war.
