In The Early Morning Rain

Got a letter in the mail
Go to war or go to jail
Got a letter in the mail
In the early morning rain
I packed my bags, I kissed my wife
And headed for the Army life
I packed my bags, I kissed my wife
In the early morning rain
I told my son not to cry
But I had tears in my eyes
I told my son not to cry
In the early morning rain
With my weapon in my hand
And a pocket full of sand
With my weapon in my hand
In the early morning rain
Got the enemy to my front
And the ocean to my rear
Wounded dying’s all I hear
In the early morning rain
As I’m laying here to rest
Caught a bullet in the chest
Even though I’ve done my best
In the early morning rain
Tell my darling not to cry
Cause I’ll never say good-bye
Tell my darling not to cry
In the early morning rain
Many a soldier will die today
Guess there’s nothing left to say
So our children, they can play
In the early morning rain
Yes, now Sergeant I can see
Why this training’s good for me
Forever more we will be free
In the early morning rain
