Well, this my job in the northern army union
Where the boy before has lost his war to reason
Well, I'll hold it high so even Lee can see me
Oh, right yes, sir, I guess I'm sure of my time and muscle

I'm the flagboy now
I'm the flagboy now
I'm the flagboy now
Oh, now

The tents are stuffed
The breath is weak
And my eyes are growing older
But the war rages on
The men are cramped
I'm bleeding sick
But oh the slave man suffers
The war rages on

Oh, I'm the flagboy now
I'm the flagboy now
I'm the flagboy now
Oh, now

Make your momma proud
Sing out found
Oh, the body of the flagboy has been found
Make your momma proud
Not too many found
Oh, the body of the flagboy has been found

Take me back to Hampton in the city
Oh, where the air is clear
And the girls are oh so pretty
Well, I miss my dog, but most of all
I miss my best friend Edny
How can I go on?

Oh, I'm the flagboy now
I'm the flagboy now
Oh, I'm the flagboy now
Oh, now

Make your momma proud
Sing out found
Oh, the body of the flagboy has been found
Make your momma proud
Not too many found
Oh, the body of the flagboy has been found

The battle's stopped
The air is clear
The body of the flagboy has been found
