[Chorus:]
Dear John (Dear John)
Oh, how I hate to write
Dear John (Dear John)
I must let you know tonight

That my love for you has gone
There's no reason to go on
For tonight I wed another
Dear John

(Spoken)
I was overseas in battle
When the postman came to me
And he handed me a letter
Aw, I was happy as I could be
You see, the fighting was
All over and the battles
They'd all been won
Then I, I opened up the letter
And it started, Dear John

[Chorus:]

(Spoken)
Will you please send back my picture
You see, 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
Please wish us happiness forever
Dear John
