[Chorus:] Dear John (Dear John) Oh, how I hate to write Dear John (Dear John) I must let you know tonight That my love for you has gone There's no reason to go on For tonight I wed another, dear John I was overseas in battle when the postman came to me. And he handed me a letter. Aw, I was happy as I could be. You see, the fighting was all over and the battles, they'd all been won. Then I, I opened up the letter and it started "Dear John." (Dear John) SPOKEN: Will you please send back my picture? You see, my husband wants it now. When I tell you who I'm wedding you won't care, dear, anyhow. Now the ceremony has started and I'll wed your brother Don. Please wish us happiness forever, dear John.
