verse
charlie boy, dont go to war, first born in forty four
kennedy made him believe we could do much more
ohhh
lillian, dont hang your head, love should make you feel good
in uniform you raised a man, who volunteered to stand
bridge
ohhh
chorus
play the bugle, play the taps and
make your mothers proud
raise your rifles to the sky boys
fire that volley loud
verse
news was bad on upland ave., metuchen mourn our loss
sons rebelled, while fathers yelled, and mothers clutched the cross
bridge
ohhh
chorus
play the bugle, play the taps and
make your fathers proud
raise your rifles to the sky boys
fire that volley loud

Songwriters
Schultz, Wesley / Fraites, Jeremy / Hughes, Maxwell
