Oh I've just come from the land of the sun
From a war that must be won
In the name of truth
With our soldiers so brave
Your freedom we will save
With our rifles and grenades
And some help from god

I want to see my family
My wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home
I've been so alone, you see

You just can't believe
The joy I did receive
When I finally got my leave
And I was going home
Oh I flew through the sky
My convictions could not lie
For my country I would die
And I will see it soon

I want to see my family
My wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home
I've been so alone, you see

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do do

When I walked through the door
My wife she lay upon the floor
And with tears her eyes were sore
I did not know why
Then I looked into her hand
And then I saw the telegram
Said that I was a brave, brave man
But that I was dead

I want to see my family
My wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home
I've been so alone, you see

I want to see my family
My wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home
I've been so alone, you see

I want to see my family
My wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home
I've been so alone, you see

    General CommentI've known the lyrics for years but still don't know what exactly this song means. I know it is a man returning from a war to be with his wife and kid but what is the point. I heard that this was based on a true story and the soldier found his wife dead. She had killed herseld a la Romeo and Juliet or she had a heart attack from finding out the bad news.
