Play The Star Spangled Banner Over Me 
Recorded by Boxcar Willie
Written by Lloene Martin

C G7
Play the Star Spangled Banner over me
C
For I have stood my last reveille
F
Place our flag upon my chest when they lay me down to rest
G7 C
Play the Star Spangled Banner over me

F
A young soldier boy lay dying in the sand
G7 C
Chaplain knelt bedside him and gently held his hand
F
The words that he spoke could barely be heard
G7 C
But as the Father listened He heard these dying words

Repeat #1

F
Please tell my dad that I died like a man
G7 C
Please ask my mom to try and understand
F
Tell the folks and friends back home I did all I could
G7 C
I did my duty like a soldier should

Repeat #1 And play...

F
I have always loved the old red white and blue
G7 C
For that grand old flag I have always been true
F
But as I am on my way to my eternity
G7 C
Play the Star Spangled Banner over me

G7
Play the Star Spangled Banner over me
C
Then I will sleep in peace eternally
F
And when they lay me in the ground let me hear the buglers sound
G7 C
Play the Star Spangled Banner over me
G7 C
Play the Star Spangled Banner over me
