Dear Dad

Merry Christmas

I'm here in Vietnam writing to you
Dear Dad

Happy New Year

This time next year my tour will be through
I'm here will all the soldier boys

Fighting to be free
JFK said that's what we should do

I wonder if they'll remember
How many of us died

I think it's going to be quite a few
Dear Dad

Tell Mom hello

Tell her she's the best Mom of all
Dear Dad

How are you

You gonna' buy that new rifle next fall
I met a nurse from Minnesota

Stationed in Pleiku
She volunteered like all us soldier boys

I wonder if they'll remember
All the boys they cared for

I think it's going to be quite a few
Dear Dad

Time to say goodbye

I'll write you again real soon
Dear Dad

The rain has come

Here they call it the big monsoon
Do the politicians care about us soldier boys

Tell those Senators forever's comin' soon
I wonder if they'll remember

How many of us died
I think it's going to be quite a few

I think it's going to be quite a few
I think it's going to be quite a few
