The grave that they dug him had flowers
And the brown earth bleached white
He's gone
When the wars of our nation did beckon
Proud of the trust
He's gone
But eternity knows him

On the leaves of the flowers
Where the earth had been dry
And deep in the trench
As he held to his rifle

Was shattered by fire
Blasted sharp through the air
One after another
In the morgue of marines

Ever lower, with fear
They can't let me die here!
I'll cover myself
I'll cover myself

The earth is my grave.รข??
The grave that they dug him had flowers
And the brown earth bleached white
He's gone
