Missing In Action Recorded by Ernest Tubb Written by A. Q. Smith and Helen Kaye [3/4 time]
C F C The warships had landed and I came ashore F C D7 G7 The fighting was over for me evermore C F C For I had been wounded they left me for dead F C G7 C A stone for my pillow and snow for my bed
G7 C The enemy found me and took me away D7 G7 And made me a prisoner of war so they say C F C But God in his mercy was with me one day F C G7 C The gate was left open and I ran away
F C I returned to the old home my sweet wife to see F C D7 G7 The home I had built for my darling and me C F C The door I then opened and there on a stand F C G7 C I saw a picture of her and a man
G7 C The clothes she was wearing told me the sad tale D7 G7 My darling was wearing a new bridal veil C F C Then I found a letter and these words I read F C G7 C Missing in Action she thought I was dead
F C So I kissed her picture and whispered goodbye F C D7 G7 My poor heart was breaking but my eyes were dry C F C I knew it was too late for her now to learn F C G7 C I knew she must never know I had returned
G7 C A vagabond dreamer forever I'll roam D7 G7 Because there was no one to welcome me home C F C The face of my darling no more will I see F C G7 C For Missing in Action forever I'll be
