Will You Wait Little Girl for Me?
Honey, don’t you hear the bugle calling, calling me to go?
Honey don’t you see my tear-drops falling, ‘cause I love you so?
Soon I will be marching way from you far away to fight a foreign foe.
So, ere we part just give me one more loving kiss, and honey tell me this:
Will you wait, little girl, will you wait alone for me?
And when I’m in the fray, fighting for the day,
Don’t let another fellow steal your heart away.
Ev’ry night, little girl, by the light, little girl,
of the campfire your face I’ll see,
And till the breezes blow Old Glory over Mexico,
Will you wait, little girl, for me?
Honey, when the sun goes down behind the hills I will dream of you.
I’ll be longing for a glance into your eyes, eyes that thrill me through.
Keep the same love burning down in your heart, keep the same affection there for me,
And some sweet day not far away, dear, I’ll return then you’ll no longer yearn.
