Johnathan East - When This Soldier Comes Back Home Lyrics


Well he was barely old enough at the liquor store
But they gave him a gun and they sent him to war
Never really said what he was fightin’ for
As he headed out to Vietnam
So he wrote out a letter and he sent right it back home
Said I’m coming back soon girl it won’t be long
I may be right and I may be wrong
But I hope you’ll understand.

(Chorus)
Said hey now darlin’ don’t you worry ‘bout me
It won’t be long and we’ll all be free
Won’t you tie a yellow ribbon ‘round the old oak tree
When this soldier comes back home.

Well he was walkin’ through the field with a couple of guys
When a sniper come out and took ‘em by surprise
Shot his best friend right between the eyes
Man he couldn’t sleep a wink at night
Back in the states it was really a drag
They was burnin’ their bras, they was burnin’ the flag
Gettin’ draft cards and packin’ their bags
So they wouldn’t have to go and fight.

(Repeat Chorus)

Well they got word that their job was done
So they packed their bags and hung up their guns
Took on airplane ride toward the rising sun
Couldn’t wait to get back home
They got back with the GI blues
A couple bad scars and a few tattoos
Feelin’ forgotten and just a little bit used
Wonderin’ if they might have been wrong.

(Repeat Chorus)

(Repeat Chorus)

Won’t you tie a yellow ribbon ‘round the old oak tree
When this soldier comes back home.
