lyrics

It was the spring of 42 and there was no one that was like you I'd say. barely 17 and you didn't worry bout a thing but me. Sitting on the dock and I wonder what you got under that dress. Girl you drive me wild wanna put that body to the test. Though the wait might be more than I can take, oh believe me gonna put that loving on you so good you'll never leave me

chorus: gonna love you, wanna stick together and I need you this could last forever and you know it's true. I can't get my head around it girl you keep me grounded. It don't get no better than this.

June of 42 and now the Army came to take me away. She said oh boy you'll be my hero cause you're gonna go and fight for our flag. Just do me this one favor please don't come home in a box or a bag. Although the wait might be more than I can take oh believe gonna put that loving on you so good you'll never leave me

chorus

fall of 43 and your letters started slowing down. there's bullets flying past me explosions happening all around. The perfume that you'd sprinkled on that last letter is startin to fade, but the picture that you sent girl it keeps me going every day. Although the wait might be more than I can take oh believe me gonna put that loving on you so good you'll never leave me

chorus

spring of 44 and the war is finally over for me. A purple heart a slow boat I'm coming home across the sea. I hope that when I get there forever didn't turn out too long cause you're what kept me going you're what kept me strong. Then like a bolt right outta the blue you're there in front of me telling me you know that it's true. you'll never leave me
