CHORUS
Dear John (Dear John)
Oh, how I hate to write
Dear John (Dear John)
I must let you know tonight
That my love for you has gone
There's no reason to go on
For tonight I wed another, dear John

SPOKEN: I was overseas in battle when the postman came to me. And he handed
me a letter. Aww, I was happy as I could be. You see, the fighting was all over and
the battles, they'd all been won. Then I, I opened up the letter and it started "Dear
John."

CHORUS

(Dear John)
SPOKEN: Will you please send back my picture? You see, my husband wants it
now. When I tell you who I'm wedding you won't care, dear, anyhow. Now the
ceremony has started and I'll wed your brother Don. Please wish us happiness
forever, dear John.
