"When The Roses Bloom Again" as written by and A.p. Carter....
Well they're strolling in the gloaming when the roses are in bloom
A soldier and his sweetheart brave and true
And there hearts are filled with sorrow for their thoughts are of tomorrow
As she pins a rose upon his coat of blue

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

When the roses bloom again and the sun is on the river
The mocking bird will sing its sweet refrain
In 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
Our soldier has fallen in the fray
I am dying, Captain, dying, and I know I've got 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
And a sweetheart who is waiting there for me
And it's there I pray you'll take me, I'll be faithful don't forsake me
I'll be with you when the roses bloom again

When the roses bloom again and the sun is on the river
The mocking bird will sing its sweet refrain
In the days of auld lange syne I'll be with you, Sweetheart mine
I'll be with you when the roses bloom again
