Dear John Letter - Skeeter Davis
(Billy Barton-Lewis Talley-Fuzzy Owen)

Tabbed by JerseyRock!!!   ENJOY!!!


Dear John 
oh how I hate to write 

dear John
I must let you know to-night
That my love for you has died away like grass upon the lawn
       G                           C
And to-night I'll wed another dear John

(spoken by "JOHN" in the background as he receives the letter"

I was overseas in battle, when the postman came to me
he handed me a letter and I was happy as I could be
'cause the fighting was all over and the battle had all been won
But then, I opened up the letter and it started Dear John...

Won't you please send back my pictures my husband wants em' now
when I tell you who I'm wedin', you won't care dear anyhow
and it hurts me so to tell you that my love for you is gone
but tonight I'll wed your brother Dear John...
