I'm having trouble finding the Lyrics to the Kazee version of this song. Did Kazee write this tune? Lyrics anyone?

It didn't take long online!!

Tim Radford

As sung by Buell Kazee, Brunswick 214, 1928.

Oh, Brother Green, oh, come to me,
For I am shot and bleeding.
Now I must die, no more to see
My wife and my dear children.

The southern foe has laid me low,
On this cold ground to suffer.
Stay, brother, stay and lay me away,
And write my wife a letter.

Tell her that I'm prepared to die,
And want to meet her in heaven.
Since I believed in Jesus Christ,
My sins are all forgiven.

My little ones, I love them well.
Oh, could I once more see them!
That I might bid them a long farewell,
But we will meet in heaven.

Oh, brother, I am dying now.
Oh, see I die so easy!
Oh, surely death has lost its sting
Because I love my Jesus.

Go tell my wife she must not grieve.
Oh, kiss my dear little children,
For they will call for me in vain,
When I am gone to heaven.

You can hear Buell Kazee sing THE DYING SOLDIER at The Internet Archive.

I believe the tune is one commonly used for BARBARA ALLEN.
