Lyrics:

 ^ Forgive me John, but I don't love your brother
I realize now that you're the only one
Write and tell me dear, that you'll still have me
If I am blue the awful wrong I've done

I'll tried to answer your letter the best that I know how
The way I feel about you honey really doesn't matter now
As you know the boys will be coming home soon
To be with their wives and their Ma and Pa, I'd like to come home
I'd like to see you as a wife but not as a sister in law

Forgive me John, but I don't love your brother
I realize now that you're the only one
Write and tell me dear, that you'll still have me
If I am blue the awful wrong I've done

You're asking me to do somethin' I can't do
It's hard to explain but can't you see my brother loves you
I reckon as much as I do and he married you
And I could never do him like he done me

But I wish you happiness forever may you make him a true and lovin' wife
There's nothing for me to come home for now
So I'll re-enlist and live my lonely soldier's life
