Lay the green sod on me
carve my name in stone
lay the green sod on me
the soldier has come home

Don't mourn for me, my darling
don't cry when I am gone
don't mourn for me, my darling
the soldier will come home

My friends have gone before me
and layed their tired bodies down
my friends have gone before me
to prepare the resting ground

Let me go to sleep now
to march and fight no more
let me go to sleep now
I'm tired, my body's sore

So lay the green sod on me
put the wreath upon my stone
lay the green sod on me
the soldier has come home

(the soldier has come home)
