409. We Are Soldiers

We are soldiers in the army.
We have to fight although we have to cry.
We've got to hold up the bloodstained banner.
We've got to hold it up until we die!

My mother was a soldier.
She had her hand on the gospel plow.
But one day she got old; couldn't fight anymore.
She said, "I'll stand here and fight anyhow." [Refrain]
