She was too young to understand

Why her daddy was leaving

For A far away land

All she knew about war was what she saw on tv

Soldiers were dying and she was scared as could be

So the day that he left, she hugged him real tight

And said I’Ll say A prayer for you every night

And she prayed

Chorus

God bless mommy, my doggie and me

Bless everyone in my family

God bless our country and whatever you do

God bless my soldier too

God bless my soldier too

Most everyday she sent letters from home

Just to tell him she missed him

And how much she’D grown

She’D say she was proud of her gi joe

That wasn’T his name but she knew he would know

Then she’D write out the words to her daily prayer

To make sure he knew that she and god cared

Repeat chorus

The days turned to months and the months to A year

She prayed and she prayed so sweet and sincere

And when he finally called and said I’M coming home

She whispered these words to him through the phone

Repeat chorus
