    Lyrics

    Two days past eighteen
    He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens
    Sat down in a booth, at a café there
    Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
    He's a little shy, so she gave him a smile
    And he said, would you mind sittin' down for awhile
    And talkin' to me, I'm feelin' 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've 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
    Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
    Our love will never end
    Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
    Never more to be alone
    When the letter says, a soldier's coming home

    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 think of that day, sittin' 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
    Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
    Our love will never end
    Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
    Never more to be alone
    When the letter says a soldier's coming home

    One Friday night at a football game
    The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
    A man said, folks would you bow your heads
    For a list of local, Vietnam dead
    Cryin' all alone under the stands
    Was a piccolo player in the marching band
    And one name read, but 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
    Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
    Our love will never end
    Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
    Never more to be alone
    When the letter says a soldier's coming...

    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
    Never more to be alone
    When the letter says a soldier's coming home
