                                 Martha's Song
                              -------------------


                            Come on home to me my
                            confederate sons
                            sleep in peace, lay to rest
                            for your journey is done
                            and what I wouldn't give just
                            to see you at play
                            in the grasses and fields where
                            now you must lay
                            come home to me my
                            confederate sons
                            you will not die in vain for battles
                            not won
                            and what I wouldn't give just to
                            rock you once more
                            in this chair that I sit in
                            like my mother before
                            so I come home to you my
                            confederate sons
                            the waiting is over and now
                            we'll be one
                            but what I wouldn't give just
                            to be there today
                            in the fields of Carolina where
                            now we must lay.
