  • Just a picture on a table, just some letters Mama saved
    And a costume brooch from England that has on the back engraved
    "To Eileen, I love you, London, 1943"
    But she never heard from him again, and he never heard of me.

    And the war still ain't over for Mama
    Every night in her dreams she still sees
    The young face of someone who brought her
    Silver medals and sweet memories.

    In Mama's bedroom closet, to this day on her top shelf
    There's a flag folded 3-cornered, layin' by itself
    The sergeant would surely be honored to know how pretty she still is
    And after all these lonely years, his Eileen still lives.

    And the war still ain't over for Mama
    Every night in her dreams she still sees
    The young face of someone who brought her
    Silver medals and sweet memories.

    The young face of someone who brought her
    Silver medals and sweet memories
