His life for his country

My brave lad he sleeps
In his faded coat of blue
In his lonely grave unknown
Lies the heart that beat so true
He sank, faint and hungry
Among the famished brave
And they laid him sad and lonely
Within his nameless grave
No more the bugle calls
The weary one
Rest noble spirit
In thy grave unknown
I shall find you and know you
Among the good and true
Where a robe of white is given
For the faded coat of blue.
