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
