Lyrics

Lonely, lonely, lonely soldier boy
Lonely, lonely, lonely soldier boy
Ah, ah, ah

A few months back a young man
Who had just reached seventeen
Waved goodbye to the girl he loved
He had become a Marine
As he walked down the dock
With his head up in the air
Carrying his shoulders high
He heard from the crowd
A faint little whisper:
"Goodbye my darling goodbye
Lonely, lonely, lonely soldier boy
Goodbye my darling goodbye"

As his ship pulled away
And headed for the open sea
The thought ran through his mind
"Will she be true to me?"
As he stared at the picture
He was holding in his hand
Teardrops filled his eyes
And for the very last time
He heard her whisper:
"Goodbye my darling goodbye
Lonely, lonely, lonely soldier boy
Goodbye my darling goodbye"

Now his ship was returning
The anchor soon would be down
They were coming in to dock
People were all around
He searched through the crowd
For that certain little face
Nowhere could it be found
So he packed up his gear
Like a lonely soldier boy
And headed off to town

Lonely, lonely, lonely soldier boy...
