The Great War

from Great Poems of the World War, an electronic edition

The Blue and the Gray in France

HERE'S to the Blue of the wind-swept North,

When we meet on the fields of France;

May the spirit of Grant be with you all

As the sons of the North advance.

And here's to the Gray of the sun-kissed South,

When we meet on the fields of France;

May the spirit of Lee be with you all

As the sons of the South advance.

And here's to the Blue and the Gray as one,

When we meet on the fields of France;

May the spirit of God be with us all

As the sons of the Flag advance.
