We're Tenting To-night 7
(tenting on the old camp ground)
Walter Kittredge, Walter Kittredge,
 


1. We're tenting tonight on the old camp ground, Give us a song to cheer.
Our Weary hearts, a song of home And friends we love so dear.
Many are the hearts that are weary tonight, Wishing for the war to cease,
Many are the hearts that are looking for the right, To see the dawn of peace.
Tenting tonight, tenting tonight, Tenting on the old camp ground.

2. We've been tenting tonight on the old Camp ground,Thinking of days gone by
Of the loved ones at home that gave us the hand, And the tear that said 'Good-Bye.'
Many are the hearts that weary tonight,&c.
Tenting tonight, tenting tonight, Tenting on the old Camp ground.

3.We are tired of war on the old Camp ground, Many are dead and gone.
Of the brave and true who've left their home, Others been wounded long.
Many are the hearts that weary tonight, &c.
Tenting tonight, tenting tonight, Tenting on the old Camp ground.

4. We've been fighting today on the old Camp ground, Many are lying near;
Some, are Dead, and some are dying, Many are in tears.
Many are the hearts that weary tonight,&c.
Dying tonight, dying tonight, Dying on the old Camp ground.
