When the Roses Bloom Again - Lyrics

They were strolling in the gloaming
Where the roses were in bloom
A soldier and his sweetheart brave and true
And their hearts were filled with sorrow
For their thoughts were of tomorrow
As she pinned a rose upon his coat of blue

Do not ask me, Love, to linger
For you know not what to say
For Duty calls your Sweetheart's name again
And your heart need not be sighing
If I be among the dying
I'll be with you when the Roses bloom again

When the Roses Bloom again beside the River
And the mockingbird has sung his sweet refrain
In the Days of Auld Lang Syne
I'll be with you Sweetheart mine
I'll be with you when the Roses bloom again

With the rattle of the battle
Came a whisper soft and low
A soldier who had fallen in the fray
I am dying, I am dying, and I know I have to go
But I want to tell you before I pass away

There's a far and distant river
Where the Roses are in bloom
A sweetheart who is waiting there for me
And it's there I pray you take me
I've been faithful, don't forsake me
I'll be with her when the Roses bloom again!
