MAMA LOOK SHARP

Momma, hey momma
Come looking for me
I'm here in the meadow
By the red maple tree
Momma, hey momma
Look sharp
Here I be
Hey, hey momma, look sharp
Them soldiers they fired
Oh ma did we run
But when we turned around
The battle begun
Then I went under
Oh ma, am I done
Hey, hey momma, look sharp
My eyes are wide open
My face to the sky
Is that you, I'm hearing
In the tall grass near by
Ah momma come find me
Before I do die
Hey, hey momma, look sharp
I'll close your eyes, my Billy
Those eyes that can not see
And I'll bury you, my Billy
Beneath the maple tree
And never again
Will you whisper to me
Hey, hey, oh momma, look sharp
