HE'S GONE    

TONIGHT I SIT WITH MY MEMORIES,
OF HAPPY DAYS GONE BY.
I LOST MY BROTHER YESTERDAY,
AT THE VERY THOUGHT OF IT,I CRY.

HE TRIED SO HARD TO WIN THE FIGHT
HIS SPIRIT DIDN'T WANT TO GIVE UP.
HE WANTED TO GET HOME AGAIN
AND NOW THIS BITTER --CUP.

HE WAS MY ONLY BROTHER,
HE WAS MUCH YOUNGER THAN ME.
AND HE SUFFERED SUCH A LONG, LONG TIME ,
NOW A MERCIFUL GOD HAS SET HIM FREE.
