    (Tom T. Hall)

    At the airport in Chicago Sunday night
    A soldier and his pretty wife came by
    She had brought him there to send him off to war
    I heard him say now don't cry anymore.

    Unashamed they kissed each other there
    He ran his fingers through her pretty hair
    Once or twice she tried but could not speak
    I saw the teardrops rolling down her cheeks.

    She said now don't you worry I'll be true
    I'll hope and pray no harm will come to you
    I thought to myself good Lord what a shame
    It made me stop and wonder who's to blame.

    That airport looked so big and then so small
    I couldn't hold a teardrop back at all
    He turned and ran to catch his waiting plane
    She stood there crying calling out his name.

    She watched his plane go up into the sky
    She waited until it was out of sight
    Then she smiled and I thought Lord she's lost her mind
    But she reached into her purse and got a dime.

    She was smiling as she dropped the money in
    She was smiling as she let the number ring
    And as I left I heard her say into the phone
    I'll be over later lover boy he's gone...
