You will always have less trouble with a snake in a towsack than a man in a robe

The lines on this marker

tell the fate of Corporal Parker

He was young, too young to die

But these lines they never lie

 

Upon the grave in this sad meadow

The fallen tears of his widow

Forever stain this granite stone

Billy Parker please come home

 

And on the grass entwined together

two faded roses will forever

mark the dreams war took away

and the price two lovers paid

 

Between these lines there was a Life

A Mother, Father and a Wife

Now it’s all been sacrificed

Another soldier won’t come home
