Peace... Finally

Lay my body here and now,

Down within this cold cold ground,

And while the drum and fife a sound,

Know that I am happy now.

I have fought for many day,

Have stood my ground ne'er been afraid,

And while the Scottish Bagpipe play,

Know I rest where I will lay.

Wipe your eyes don't shed a tear,

I am peaceful, without fear,

And as those seven rifles hear,

Know I am more than stronger here.

I have marched from west to east,

Have conquered man, have conquered beast,

And in your silence say the least,

Know I am at eternal peace.
