THEME SONG OF
THE CUMBERLAND GUARD

 

"God Wears a Light Blue Ribbon"

Words by Matt Merta 19th U.S. / Music to the tune “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon

Way up in Heaven God wears a light blue ribbon

He wears a light blue ribbon and He wears it very proud

St. Peter asks, “Lord, why the light blue ribbon?”

He says He wears the ribbon for the Cumberland Guard…

(Chorus)

Cumberland (echo Cumberland) Cumberland (echo Cumberland)

God wears a light blue ribbon for the Cumberland Guard…

Cumberland (echo Cumberland) Cumberland (echo Cumberland)

God wears a light blue ribbon for the Cumberland Guard…

St. Peter looked at all of Heaven’s soldiers

To find a light blue ribbon, it wasn’t very hard

There was Grant and Sheridan and Sherman

All wearing light blue ribbons for the Cumberland Guard

(Chorus)

When I die I hope to go to Heaven

With saints in my battalion and an angel for my pard

I’ll march with John Brown in the army of the Lord

And wear a light blue ribbon for the Cumberland Guard

(Chorus)
