Blades of Grass and Pure White Stones


Words and Music by Philip Naish, Orrin Hatch and Lowell Alexander
Blades of grass and pure white stones
Shelter those who've come and gone.
Just below the emerald sod
Are boys who reached the arms of God.

    Buried here with dignity
    Endless rows for all to see,
    Freedom's seeds in sorrow sown,
    'Neath blades of grass and pure white stones.

Blades of grass and pure white stones
Cover those who left their homes
To rest in fields here, side by side,
Lest we forget their sacrifice.

    Buried here with dignity
    Endless rows for all to see,
    Freedom's seeds in sorrow sown,
    'Neath blades of grass and pure white stones.
