Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Two days past eighteen
He was waitin' on a bus in his army greens
Sat down in a booth in a cafe there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she give him a smile
And he said, "Would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talkin' to me? I'm feelin' pretty low"
She said "I'm off in an hour and I know a place we can go"

So they went down and sat on the pier
He said "I bet you got a boyfriend, but I don't care
Cause I got no one, to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?"

[Chorus]
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
"Too young for him," they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Nevermore to be alone
When the letter says, "A soldier's comin' home"

[Verse 2]
So the letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart, it might be love
And all of the things he was so scared of
He said, "When it's gettin' kinda rough over here
I sit and think about that day on the pier
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for a while"
[Chorus]
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
"Too young for him," they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Nevermore to be alone
When the letter says, "A soldier's comin' home"

[Verse 3]
One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
And a man said, "Folks, would you bow your heads
For a list of local Vietnam dead?"

Well, cryin' all alone underneath the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marchin' band
And one name read, and nobody really cared
Except that pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

[Chorus]
And I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
"Too young for him," they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Nevermore to be alone
When the letter says, "A soldier's comin' home"
When the letter says, "A soldier's comin' home"

Lyrics for those who don’t know the song:
Two days past eighteen
He was waiting for the bus in his army greens
Sat down in a booth in a cafe there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she gave him a smile
So he said would you mind sitting down for a while
And talking to me
I'm feeling a little low
She said I'm off in an hour
And I know where we can go
So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
My love will never end
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter says
My soldiers coming home
The letters came from an army camp
In California and Viet Nam
He told her of his heart It might be love
And all of the things he was so scared of
He said when it's getting kinda tough over here
I think of that day sitting down at the pier
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Don't worry but
I won't be able to write for awhile
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
My love will never end
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter says
My soldiers coming home
SOLO
One Friday night at a football game
The lords prayer said and the anthem sang
The man said
Folks would you bow your head
For the list of local Viet Name dead
Crying all alone under the stands
Was the picolo player in the marching band
And one name read nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
My love will never end
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter says
My soldiers coming
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
My love will never end
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter says
My soldiers coming home

May be overreacting, but I think this is the best cover of anything I've heard. Love this dude

Samuel Leblanc

Amen

It’s very good but Natalie Maines vocals are much more unique than his. She’s in another stratosphere compared to this. I’m not sure anyone could reproduce her stuff and make it better. And I don’t even like her bc of her big mouth lol.

@Dreams of Horses That's what's great about America. There isn't a right or wrong answer. They're all fantastic covers!
