my lyricsbox
I just got news, my little darlin'
Uncle Sam is takin' me away
No time for blues, my little darlin'
Everyone must help the USA

Now from you I want a little promise
One that I'll remember every day
After you tell me that you love me,
Promise to be true while I'm away

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

Write me sweet letters, little darlin',
Tellin' me you're thinkin' of me, dear
No matter where I am, my darlin',
Words of love from you I want to hear

You'll be proud of me, I know, my darlin'
I'll come back with medals from the parade
So when you tell me that you love me,
Promise to be true while I'm away
