Blue Bell

Cat. #0072 (MFH #31) - As sung by Mrs. Gladys Everly, Springfield, Missouri on April 20, 1958

Blue Bell, th dawn is wakeing
Sweetheart you must not sigh
Blue Bell, my heart is breaking
I come to say goodbye
Hear all the bugles calling
Calling to each brave heart
Sweetheart your tears are falling
Blue Bell, we too must part

Goodbye, my Blue Bell
Farewell to thee
One last fond look
Into your eyes of blue
Near campfires gleaming
Near shot and shell
I will be dreaming
Of my own Blue Bell

Blue Bell, they are returning
Each greets his sweethearts true
Blue Bell, your heart is yearning
N'er a one greets you
Sadly they tell th story
Tell how they fought and fell
No thought of fame or glory
Only of his Blue Bell
