Der gute Kamerad is a traditional lament of the German Armed Forces, written by the German poet Ludwig Uhland in the XIX Century.
The song is about the immediate experience of a soldier losing a comrade in battle.
Its use was never limited to one particular faction and was sung or cited by representatives of all political backgrounds throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, and was translated for use in numerous fighting forces.
And God damn it, this music always make manly sweat roll down my eyes.

Lyrics:

Ich hatt' einen Kameraden,
Einen bessern findst du nit.
Die Trommel schlug zum Streite,
Er ging an meiner Seite
In gleichem Schritt und Tritt.

Eine Kugel kam geflogen:
Gilt sie mir oder gilt sie dir?
Ihn hat es weggerissen,
Er liegt zu meinen Füßen
Als wär's ein Stück von mir.

Will mir die Hand noch reichen,
Derweil ich eben lad.
Kann dir die Hand nicht geben,
Bleib du im ew'gen Leben,
Mein guter Kamerad!
