When The Boys Come Home. Words and Music by Charles Carrol Sawyer. The Music of this song can be obtained at the celebrated Music-Establishment of Sawyer & Thompson, 59 Fulton Avenue, Brooklyn, N.Y.
The boys are coming home again, This war will soon be o'er: The North and South again will stand United as of yore: Yes, hand in hand, and arm in arm Together we will roam; Oh! won't we have a happy time, When all the boys come home! Chorus: We'll hoist the good old Flag again, On Freedom's lofty dome, And live in peace and happiness, When all the boys come home. We'll have no more false hopes and fears, No more heart-rending sighs- The Messenger of peace will dry The weary mourner's eyes: We'll laugh and sing, we'll dance and play Ah! wait until they come, And joy will crown the happy day When all the boys come home! Chorus - We'll hoist, &c.
How proud Our Nation then will stand! United ever more, We'll bid defiance to the foe That dare approach our shore; We'll hoist the good old Flag again,
