Long I my Country's battles fought. Obey'd the bugle call
Into pitch'd actions with the French, I've seen my colleagues fall
Wounded and maimed yet full with life I saw each field our own
And cherished fair, the happy hope to end my days at home
Buy Brother dear a long farewell. My Comrades all Adieu
The long sleep far from the toil may yet be had by you
