Listen to the song

Tenting Tonight On the Old Camp Ground

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

(Chorus)
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

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 "Goodbye!"

(Chorus) 

We are tired of war on the old camp ground,
Many are dead and gone,
Of the brave and true who've left their homes,
Others been wounded long.

(Chorus) 

We've been fighting today 
on the old camp ground
Many are laying near
Some are dead and some are dying
Many are in tears

(Final Chorus)
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
dying tonight
dying tonight
dying on the old camp ground.
