America Here’s My Boy Lyrics
There’s a million mothers knocking at the nations door,
A million mothers, yes and there’ll be millions more,
And while within each mother heart they pray,
Just hark what one brave mother has to say.
America, I raised a boy for you,
America, You’ll find him staunch and true,
Place a gun upon his shoulder,
He is ready to die or do,
America, he is my only one;
My hope, my pride and joy,
But if I had another, he would march beside his brother,
America, here’s my boy.
There’s a million mothers waiting by the fireside bright,
A million mothers, waiting for the call tonight,
And while within each heart there’ll be a tear,
She’ll watch her boy go marching with a cheer.
