Just heard the news, he`s coming home,
And he`ll be back today
That man of mine, who went to stand
In lines of men in gray

For four long years he`s been away
In places I`ve not heard
While lonely in my bed I lay
With not a moment shared

I cannot wait till he arrives
So slow does pass the time
I`ve learned that he`ll be back tonight,
Some time just after nine

I`ll hold him to my bosom tight,
Forever there to keep
This man who has been gone so long
Tonight shall have no sleep

And then tomorrow, come the dawn
We`ll start our life anew
To be together always
With a love that is so true.
