Dear John oh how I hate to write dear John I must let you know tonight
That my love for you has died away like grass upon the lawn
And tonight I wed another dear John
I was overseas in battle when the postman came to me
And he handed me a letter and I was just as happy as I could be
For the fighting was all over and the battle have been won
Then I opened up the letter and it's started dear John
Dear John oh how I hate to write...
Will you please send back my picture my husband wants it now
When I tell you who I'm wedding you won't care dear anyhow
Now the ceremony has started and I wed your brother Don
Would you wishes happiness forever dear John
