      Rosanne Cash - When The Master Calls The Roll Música y Letra

      Girl with hair of flaming red
      Seeking perfect lover
      For to lie down on her feather bed
      Soul secrets to uncover
      
      Must be gentile, must be strong
      With disposition sunny
      Just as faithful as the day is long
      And careful with his money
      
      And so the open letter read
      The news boy did deliver
      Three months later plans were made to wed
      Down by the King James river
      
      Know the season may come
      Know the season may go
      When love is joined together
      With whoever be made whole
      When the master calls the roll
      
      Oh my darling will you leave?
      Take me to the altar
      I don't have strength to watch you as you leave
      But my love will never fault her
      
      Oh my darling Marry Anne
      The march to war is calling
      Somewhere far across these southern lands
      The bands of brothers falling
      
      My tender bride, the tides demand
      That I leave you with your mother
      With my father's rifle in one hand
      Your locket in the other
      
      Know the season may come
      Know the season may go
      Beware the storm clouds gather
      Take heat in warm of soul
      When the master calls the roll
      
      But can this union be preserved?
      The soldier boy was crying
      I will never travel back to her
      But not for lack of trying
      
      It's a love of one true heart at last
      That made the boy a hero
      But a riffle ball and a cannon blast
      Cut him down to zero
      
      Oh Virginia once I came
      I'll see you when I'm younger
      And I'll know you by your hills again
      This town from 6 feet under
      
      Know the season may come
      Know the season may go
      A man is torn asunder
      But someday we may know
      When the master calls the roll
      
      Though the storm clouds gather
      Let the union be made whole
      When the master calls the roll
