Dear John Letter
Dear John, oh, how I hate to write Dear John, I must let you know tonight That my love for you has died away like grass upon the lawn And tonight I wed another dear John I was overseas in battle when the postman came to me And he handed me a letter I was just as happy as I could be For the fighting was all over and the battle have been won Then I opened up the letter and that started, dear John Dear John, oh, how I hate to write Dear John, I must let you know tonight That my love for you has died away like grass upon the lawn And tonight I wed another dear John Will you please send back my picture, my husband wants it now And when I tell you who I'm wedding I know you won't care, dear anyhow Now the ceremony has just started and tonight I'll wed your brother Don Will you please wish us happiness forever, dear John?
