"A Dear John Letter" lyrics

A 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 mail called up with me
And they handed me a letter
Why I was happy as could be

For the fighting was all over
And the battle had 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 marrying
Well, you won't care dear anyhow

Now the ceremony has started
And I'll wed your brother Don
Will you wish us happiness forever
Dear John

And tonight I wed another
Dear John
