Recorded by Marty Robbins
Written by George F. Root
G 
Just before the battle  
C 
mother
D7 
I am thinking most of  
G 
you
 
While upon the fields we're  
C 
watching
D7 
With the enemy in  
G 
view
 
Comrades brave are round me  
C 
lying
D7 
Filled with thoughts of home and  
G 
God
 
For well they know that on the  
C 
morrow
D7 
Some will sleep beneath the  
G 
sod
D7 
Farewell mother you may  
G 
never
A7 
Press me to your heart  
D7 
again
 
But  
G 
oh you'll not forget me  
C 
mother
D7 
If I'm numbered with the  
G 
slain
 
Hark I hear the bugles  
C 
sounding
D7 
Tis the signal for the  
G 
fight
 
Now may God protect us  
C 
mother
D7 
As he ever does the  
G 
right
 
Hear the battle cry of  
C 
freedom
D7 
How it swells up in the  
G 
air
 
Yes we'll rally round the  
C 
standard
D7 
Or we'll perish nobly  
G 
there
Repeat #3

Who is Marty Robbins?
- Martin David Robinson (September 26, 1925 - December 8, 1982), known professionally as Marty Robbins, was an American singer, songwriter, actor, multi-instrumentalist, and NASCAR racing driver. Robbins was one of the most popular and successful country and western singers for most of his nearly four-decade career, which spanned from the late 1940s to the early 1980s.
Born in Glendale, Arizona, Robbins taught himself guitar while serving in the United States Navy during World War II, and subsequently drew fame performing in clubs in and around his hometown. In 1956, he released his first No. 1 country song, "Singing the Blues" and one year later, released two more No. 1 hits, "A White Sport Coat" and "The Story of My Life". In 1959, Robbins released his signature song, "El Paso", for which he won the Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Recording. The song began Robbins' association with western balladry, a style which would become a staple of his career. Later releases that drew critical acclaim include "Don't Worry", "Big Iron" and "Honkytonk Man", the last for which the 1982 Clint Eastwood film is named, and in which Robbins made his final appearance before death.
Over the course of his career, Robbins recorded more than 500 songs and 60 albums, and won two Grammy Awards, was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and was named the 1960s Artist of the Decade by the Academy of Country Music. Robbins was a commercial success in both the country and pop genres, and his songs were covered by many other famous artists, including Johnny Cash, the Grateful Dead and Elvis Presley. His music continues to have an influence in pop culture today, having recently appeared in several contemporary pop culture features, including the video game Fallout: New Vegas, and the series finale of AMC's Breaking Bad.
