Listen to the voices of the past. They seem to say,
Listen to the songs they sing of some far distant day,
Echoes fading, falling, still I hear them calling,
“Remember me. Remember me.”
Wonder where my old pals are and wonder if they still
Hope you’re doing fine, old gang, and hope you always will
Through the long years gliding, anywhere you’re riding,
Remember me. Remember me.
NB: The above verses were from the soundtrack of the Republic picture, "Sunset on the Desert" (1942) but the original unrecorded song was as follows:
Listen to the voices of the past, they seem to say,
Listen to a prayer from no-man’s land of yesterday,
Listen where the poppy grows and listen where the crosses rose,
Remember me, remember me!
Listen to a million voices promising they will
Listen to the promise of a million more that will
Listen as Old Glory brings a promise borne on roaring wings,
Remember, we remember you!
