Did You See My Daddy Over There Lyrics - Eddy Arnold

Review The Song (2)



Writer: Bill Showmet
Recorded by: Eddie Arnold 1945

1.
A little boy tugged gently
At a soldier's khaki sleeve.
He says, "Forgive me, mister; but you've been across, I b'lieve.
I see the purple heart you wear
That tells what you've been through.
Perhaps you know my daddy, sir,
'Cause he's a soldier too.


"Did you see my daddy, mister soldier,
When you were fighting over there?
I thought perhaps by chance
You met him there in France
Or somewhere over there across the sea.
It's been so long since Daddy went away.
sponsored links
My mommy longs for him both night and day.
I know 'twould make her glad
If you had seen my dad,
Did you see my daddy over there?"


2.
The soldier's eyes grew misty
As he watched the boy's face,
For it recalled a memory
That time can not erase.
A buddy lost in action,
The best pal he ever had.
Till death he carried o'er his heart
A picture of this lad.


"Did you see my daddy, mister soldier,
When you were fighting over there?
I thought perhaps by chance
You met him there in France
Or somewhere over there across the sea.
It's been so long since daddy went away.
My mommy longs for him both night and day.
I know 'twould make her glad
If you had seen my dad.
Did you see my daddy over there?"

Anyone have this in any media at all? | Reviewer: Dave Long | 6/5/09

Margaret, good luck finding it on a CD. I'd be happy to locate it on a 78! I've been looking for it for a long time.
My dad had jukeboxes and pinball machines in central Florida at the end of the war and he helped me learn this song as a six year old. It brought a lot of tears to a lot of returning GIs and a lot of beers for my Dad.
I remember the lyrics only slightly different but nothing significant.Hopefully, someone will see this and be able to furnish us a copy.
