"When the Roses Bloom Again" as written by and Jeffrey Scott/guthrie Tweedy....
The strolling in the gloaming where the roses were in bloom
A soldier and his sweetheart brave and true
And their hearts were filled with song for their thoughts were of tomorrow
As she pinned a rose upon his coat of gloom

Do not ask my love to linger when you know not what to say
For duty calls your sweetheart’s name again
And your heart need not be sad that I’ll be among the dying
I’ll be with you when the roses bloom again

When the roses bloom again beside the river
The mockingbird has sung its sweet refrain
And the days of Auld Lang Syne
I’ll be with you, sweetheart mine
I’ll be with you when the roses bloom again

With the rattle of the battle came a whisper soft and low
A soldier who had fallen in the fray
I am dying, I am dying, and I know I have to go
But I want to tell you before I pass away
There’s a far and distant river where the roses are in bloom
A sweetheart who is waiting there for me
And it’s there I’ll pray you take me
I’ll be faithful, don’t forsake me
I’ll be with you when the roses bloom again
