O’Bugler (original)

O’Bugler

It’s time again, old bugler, Too Swiftly Came This Dawn

Stand Tall and Blow a Reveille, We Must Our Mantle Don

 

Be Keen and Sharp, Good Sentry, We’re Lincoln’s Child Once More

Let All Men By Your Presence Know, Soon Comes a Painful Chore

Beckon Bugler High and Low, Let All Heed Well Your Plea

Citizens, Comrades, Homeboys – Who Will Stand for Liberty

 

See How Raised Flag Seems Furled Close, Making Sad Display

Don’t Dwell on Things as They Appear, Look Back to Yesterday

 

Mark Instead those Near-Gone Days This Bolt Flew Proud

With Worth

Beladen of Toils, Sweat and Blood, The labours of Our Birth

 

Remember Too It’s Light Was Dim for People of Odd Sheen

Countless Are Those Wretched Souls, The Torments They Have Seen

 

Sadly Seeing All These Echoed Visions of Our Land

Still Stand Tall and Make Your Call, Be Liberty’s One Man Band

 

For Greatness Waits to Reign Again, We’re History’s Best Bar None

Come Forth You Deputations Vast, Proclaim Us Noblest Son

 

And Hail We Peoples Needful Deep, Flocked Ere Upon This Shore

Found Succor Sweet, Did Gladness Meet, Did Ease That Painful Sore

 

Flaws May Be O’Bugler Still, The Best This World Has Known

Left to Learn and Find Our Way, What Bounties Will Be Sown

 

Yet Some Just See What’s Bad and Ill, Blaring Harsh Decree

Shout With Ire How Some Have Less, Besmirch Our Dignity

 

So Brace Old Flag to Steel Our Souls, The Road Ahead to Trod

We’ll March in Faith or Walk alone, Each To Face His God

 

Rouse Our Fight, Brave Bugler, With Trumpet Rend the Air

Nudge This Flag With Trumpet’s Blast, It’s Majesty to Declare

 

See Brave Heroes Long Gone Down, We Ne’er Forgot Your Deeds

We’ll Do Our Best to win Your Smile and Destiny It’s Must Needs

 

I Am the Bugler, You Are Too, We’re One in Freedom’s Band

Let’s Raise the Call and Do Our All to Save This Precious Land!
