a soldier's goodbye lyrics

Lyrics for "A Soldier's Goodbye" by Jack Dolgen:

On the seventh tour,
I met my man.
On the seventh tour,
I met my man. 

Like my father before,
So proud I’d stand.
Like my father before,
So proud I’d stand. 

Now it’s hard to believe,
Now it’s hard to believe,
I met my man. 

On the seventh day,
We all come to pass.
On the seventh day,
We all come to pass.

And though it’s hard to believe,
And though it’s hard to believe,
These days still last.

Please forgive me girls,
I’ve done all I can.
Don’t forget me son,
You’re all I am.

I know it’s hard to believe,
I know it’s hard to believe. 

(If there is a different way, will you go?)
