I May Be Gone For a Long, Long Time

Good-bye, dear, I’m leaving you today.
Don’t cry, dear, just dry those tears away;
Duty calls, and I must obey.
But I’ll always hope and pray,
While I’m sailing for across the sea.
Will you always think of me?

I may be gone for a long, long time,
Long, long time, long, long time;
But when I go you will kow that I always pine
For the day when you’ll be mine.
Be true to me for a long, long time,
Rain or shine, sweetheart mine!
And I’ll be just as true to you as to the Red, White and Blue.
Though I’m gone for a long, long time.

Some day, dear, when I come back to you,
we will build a little home for two;
then we’ll settle down, dear, for life,
Far away from care and strife.
Cheer up, dear, and when I’m far away,
Don’t forget to write each day.
