24 SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS, 22. GOING BACK H-O-M-E.
Going back, going back,
Going back h-o-m-e. Going back, going back,
From the lands across the sea. Going back, going back,
When we've made the whole world free; We'll clear the track till we get back,
Going back h-o-m-e.
(Copyrighted by The John Church Co., 1917.)
23. I'LL WED THE GIRL I LEFT BEHIND.
I can picture to-night by the dim candle light
The girl I left behind. I can see her once more by the old cabin door,
Watching with love divine. Oh, I gave her the ring and I promised to bring,
Bring the parson back and make her mine. So I'm going right back, hang my hat on the rack,,
And wed the girl I left behind.

24. I DON'T CARE WHERE THEY SEND ME.
Oh, I don't care where they send me.
Or what it is I have to do; And I don't care what may happen
Or where lam when I get thru; But I do care for you, Dearie,
With your dreaming eyes of blue; So while I'm fighting over here,
My heart is home with you.
("Used by permission of T. B. Harms & Francis, Day & Hunter.)
