Did You See My Daddy Over There

Song Author Bill Showmet Performer: Eddy Arnold Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]A little boy tugged gently
[F]At a soldier's khaki [C]sleeve

He says forgive me mister
But [D7]you've been across I [G7]believe

[C]I see the purple heart you wear
[F]That tells what you've been [C]through
[F]Perhaps you know my [A7]daddy sir
[D7]Cause he's a [G7]soldier [C]too  

Did you see my [F]daddy mister [C]soldier
When you were fighting over [G7]there

I thought perhaps by chance
You [C]met him there in France
Or [D7]somewhere over there
Across the [G7]sea   

[C]It's been so long [F]since daddy went [C]away
My mommy longs for him both night and [G7]day   
I [F]know 'twould make her glad
If [C]you had seen my dad
[F]Did you see my [G7]daddy over [C]there


The soldier's eyes grew misty
[F]As he watched the boyish [C]face

For it recalled a memory
[D7]That time can not [G7]erase

[C]A buddy lost in action
[F]The best pal he ever [C]had  
[F]Till death he carried o'er his [A7]heart
[D7]A picture [G7]of this [C]lad  

Did you see my [F]daddy mister [C]soldier
When you were fighting over [G7]there

I thought perhaps by chance
You [C]met him there in France
Or [D7]somewhere over there
Across the [G7]sea   

[C]It's been so long [F]since daddy went [C]away
My mommy longs for him both night and [G7]day   
I [F]know 'twould make her glad
If [C]you had seen my dad
[F]Did you see my [G7]daddy over [C]there

A little boy tugged gently
At a soldier's khaki sleeve

He says forgive me mister
But you've been across I believe

I see the purple heart you wear
That tells what you've been through
Perhaps you know my daddy sir
Cause he's a soldier too

Did you see my daddy mister soldier
When you were fighting over there

I thought perhaps by chance
You met him there in France
Or somewhere over there
Across the sea

It's been so long since daddy went away
My mommy longs for him both night and day
I know 'twould make her glad
If you had seen my dad
Did you see my daddy over there

The soldier's eyes grew misty
As he watched the boyish face

For it recalled a memory
That time can not erase

A buddy lost in action
The best pal he ever had
Till death he carried o'er his heart
A picture of this lad

Did you see my daddy mister soldier
When you were fighting over there

I thought perhaps by chance
You met him there in France
Or somewhere over there
Across the sea

It's been so long since daddy went away
My mommy longs for him both night and day
I know 'twould make her glad
If you had seen my dad
Did you see my daddy over there
