1. We're tenting tonight on the old camp ground,
Give us a song to cheer
Our weary hearts, a song of home
And friends we love so dear.
2. We've been tenting tonight on the old camp ground,
Thinking of days gone by,
Of the loved ones at home taht gave us the hand,
And the tear that said Goodbye !
3. We are tired of war on the old camp ground,
Many are dead and gone,
Of the brave and true who've left their home,
Others been wounded long.
4. We've been fighting today on the old camp ground,
Many are lying near.
Some are dead and some are dying,
Many are in tears.
