The hours sad I left a maid

A lingering farewell taking

Her sighs and tears her steps delayed

I thought her heart was breaking

In hurried words her name I blest

I breathed the vows that bind me

And to my heart in anguish pressed

The girl I left behind me

Then to the south we bore away

To win a name in story

And there where dawns the sun of day

There dawned our sun of glory

Both blazed in noon on freedom's height

Where in the post assigned me

I shared the glory of that fight

Sweet girl I left behind me

Full many a name our banners bore

Of former deeds of daring

But they were days of 76

In which we had no sharing

But now our laurels freshly won

With the old one shall entwine me

Singing worthy of our size each son

Sweet girl I left behind me

The hope of final victory

Within my bosom burning

Is mingling with sweet thoughts of thee

And of my fond returning

But should I never return again

Still worth thy love I ll bind me

Dishonors breath shall never stain

The name I leave behind me
