ABOUT

Arrangement of Frank Wildhorn’s original song from “The Civil War”. Performed in 2007 by the Southwestern Division of the American Choral Directors Association 8-10 Grade Boys Honor Choir, conducted by Stan McGill

Recording by the University of Kansas Men’s Glee Club, Andrea Ramsey, conducting

Text:

Tell my father that his son didn’t run or surrender.
That I bore his name with pride as I tried to remember
you are judged by what you do while passing through.

As I rest ‘neath fields of green, let him lean on my shoulder
Tell him how I spent my youth so the truth could grow older
Tell my father when you can, I was a man.

Tell him we will meet again where the angels learn to fly.
Tell him we will meet as men, for with honor did I die.
Tell him how I wore the blue, proud and true, through the fire.
Tell my father so he’ll know, I love him so.

Tell him we will meet again where the angels learn to fly.
Tell him we will meet as men, for with honor did I die.
Tell him how I wore the blue, proud and true, through the fire.
Tell my father not to cry, then say goodbye.
