  • Where is now my father's family
    That was here so long ago?
    Sitting 'round the kitchen fireside
    Brightened by the ruddy glow

    We shall all be reunited
    In that land beyond the skies
    Where there'll be no separation
    No more marching, no more sighs

    Some have gone to lands far distant
    And with others made their home
    Some upon the world of waters
    All their lives have chose to roam

    We shall all be reunited
    In that land beyond the skies
    Where there'll be no separation
    No more marching, no more sighs

    Some have gone from us forever
    For with us they could not stay
    They have all dispersed and wandered
    Gone away, so far away

    We shall all be reunited
    In that land beyond the skies
    Where there'll be no separation
    No more marching, no more sighs

    We shall meet beyond the river
    In that land of pure delight
    Where no sickness or no sorrow
    Will our joys there ever blight

    We shall all be reunited
    In that land beyond the skies
    Where there'll be no separation
    No more marching, no more sighs
    No more marching, no more sighs Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Jerry Gibson from OregonThe writer of the song was my Grandfather Newton S. Sitzlar. Alfred Karnes was the first to record it. Whether Alfred claimed to have written it, I don't know. (I have read online statements that have said that, but I have no evidence or read anything he said that he wrote it. Maybe because he recorded it, someone thought he wrote it, and they, [not Alfred], said he wrote it). Anyway I just wanted to clear up who the real writer of the song was.
