Brothers brothers here my voice
As you wait for judgement day
Death has brought you far away
And we no longer get to stay.
Brothers brothers as you wait
Know we shed so many tears
I remember all those days
And I remember all those years.
Brothers brothers laying down
Take your rest before it’s time
Once the trumpets make their sound
Some of you won’t be so fine.
Brothers brothers dead and gone
I wish that I could trade you now
Instead I’m left to soldier on
With no idea of why or how.
Brothers brothers in my heart
The pain has never gone away
I recall the very start
And now I’m stuck to wait each day.
Brothers brothers hear me cry
They don’t remember but I sure do
They do not know and some don’t care
But now you all have broke on through.
