Lyrics

Darlin Don't You Cry
Tom Cadham Ben Goerner Copyright 2004 (revised 2005)


I packed my bags cause I got the call last night
The orders in, we pull out at first light
She tells me its ok, but I can see it in her eyes
She holds me close, says I love you then she cries

Darlin? don?t you cry those tears for me
Darlin don?t you cry those tears for me
I?ll come back to be with you but now I?ve got to leave
Darlin don?t you cry those tears for me

It?s been a year, ninety letters and a day
the war surrounds me, and takes my hope away
then I see her face and remember that we promised no goodbyes
then I hear her say she loves me, I feel her tears fall from the skies

Chorus

It came so suddenly, a most familiar sound
Last thing I remember, I was layin on the ground
Confusion all around me, but good men don?t turn back
I hear somebody call my name, then everything goes black

And then I see her through the window in her chair
I slip in quietly, she doesn?t know I am there
I say I kept my promise girl, I didn?t have to say goodbye
I lean to kiss her, hold her tight and then we cry
I?ve come back to be with you, I?ll never leave again
