The Walrus Songs from Spanish American War (42) ADD: Goodbye Dolly Grey 09 Jul 07

Taking a quick scan through this thread - Wasn't "Goodbye Dolly Grey" from the Span-Am period?


If anyone wants the lyics:

Goodbye Dolly Grey

I have come to say goodbye, Dolly Grey,
It's no use to ask me why, Dolly Grey,
There's a murmur in the air
You can hear it every where,
It is time to do and dare, Dolly Grey.
Don't you hear the tramp of feet, Dolly Grey,
Sounding thro' the village street, Dolly Grey,
'tis the tramp of soldiers feet,
In their uniforms so neat,
"So goodbye until we meet, Dolly Grey!"

Goodbye Dolly, I must leave you,
Tho' it breaks my heart to go.
Something tells me I am needed
At the front to fight the foe.
See the soldier boys are marching,
And I can no longer stay.
Hark! I hear the bugles calling,
"Goodbye Dolly Grey".

Hear the rolling of the drums, Dolly Grey,
Back from war the reg'ment comes, Dolly Grey,
On your lovely face so fair,
I can see a look of care,
For your soldier boy's not there, Dolly Grey.
For the one you loved so well, Dolly Grey,
In the midst of battle fell, Dolly Grey,
With his face towards the foe,
As he died he murmured low,
"I must say goodbye and go, Dolly Grey!"
