Gettysburg Mourns Gettysburg Mourns by Paul Harris (Rochester, Illinois, U.S.A.) Gettysburg Mourns Once the drum rolls echoed hereAnd bugles sharp call cut the airThe devil had his way againWhen good men fought good men Pastures green once sewed with seedNow the stage for evil deedsCanon shot has scarred the landAnother touch of the devils hand Some say ghosts still walk the fieldsOf Gettysburg and always willLike sentries from another timeWalking still their picket lines The soldier says don’t weep for meMy fears and pain are now at peaceThe drums and bugles call no moreLong ago I walked through heavens door But Gettysburg will not forgetWhen the young men came in warAnd deep beneath her soilGettysburg still mourns And deep beneath her soil Gettysburg still mourns Author: Paul Harris, 03/2012 Comments for Gettysburg Mourns Average Rating Click here to add your own comments Mar 12, 2013 Gettyburg Mourns by: Nick C.
