When the Roses Bloom Again

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
In the rattle of the battle
Came a whisper soft and low
From a soldier, who had been wounded in the fray
"I am dying, Captain, dying
And I pray before I go
You’ll give your promise ere I pass away

June and Anita Carter:
Do not ask me, dear, to linger
For I know not what to say
When duty calls your sweetheart's name in vain
I hope your heart will not be crying
If I’m not among the dying,
I'll be with you when the roses bloom again

Johnny: Yes, when the roses bloom again
Beside the river
And the robin redbreast sings its sweet refrain
June and Anita: As in days of Auld Lang Syne
I'll be with you, sweetheart mine
I'll be with you when the roses bloom again

June and Anita:
Do not ask me, dear, to linger
For I know not what to say
When duty calls your sweetheart's name in vain
I hope your heart will not be crying
If I’m not among the dying,
I'll be with you when the roses bloom again

Johnny:
When the roses bloom again
Beside the river
And the robin redbreast sings its sweet refrain
June and Anita: As in days of Auld Lang Syne
I'll be with you, sweetheart mine
I'll be with you when the roses bloom again”
