        your daddy's gone away now dear
        but he'll be back home soon
        your daddy's gone away for now
        to fight for our way of life

        your daddy writes and says he's well
        and he can't wait to see you soon
        your daddy writes us letters
        between fighting for our dreams

        your daddy says he's standing up
        and making our world safer
        your daddy knows he's walking tall
        fighting so we can live in peace

        your daddy won't be coming home
        he gave his life for freedom - something?
        your daddy won't be home soon now
        just a bloody flag and medal for fighting
