about

Up along the Bowstring River within the Great Corona Bog, Fred & Elizabeth married the day before he was shipped off to WWI. Not sure Fred ever saw combat. Not sure Fred ever left the US because since all this happened in August of 1918—WWI ended in November

lyrics

Elizabeth, today we wed and tomorrow we must part
Mr. Wilson’s vindicated war needs a swampland Bonaparte
Elizabeth, tonight we dance and tomorrow we must die
By and by, hand in hand, am I the only one who wonders…

What I find so remarkable
To those we leave behind
Love can be
So merciful to an unremarkable life
Like mine
Like mine

Elizabeth, today we vow and tomorrow we must pray
By his grace, by your side as we wash the blood away
Elizabeth, tonight we kiss and tomorrow we must kill
By and by, hand to hand, am I the only one who wonders

What I find so remarkable
To those we leave behind
Love can be
So merciful to an unremarkable
Man like me
Love can be so kind to an unremarkable life like mine

I never wanted to be
Anything like you see
Love can be so kind
To an unremarkable life
Like mine

Like mine
