    Lyrics

    Dear John, Oh, how I hate to write
    Dear John, I must let you know tonight
    That my love for you has died away like grass upon the lawn
    And tonight I wed another, Dear John.

    I was overseas in battle when the postman came to me
    And he handed me a letter, I was happy as I could be
    For the fighting was all over and the battle had been won
    Then I opened up the letter and it started, "Dear John."

    Dear John, Oh, how I hate to write
    Dear John, I must let you know tonight
    That my love for you has died away like grass upon the lawn
    And tonight I wed another, Dear John.

    Will you please send back my picture, 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
    Will you wish us happiness forever, Dear John?

    Dear John, Oh, how I hate to write
    Dear John, I must let you know tonight
    That my love for you has died away like grass upon the lawn
    And tonight I wed another, Dear John.
