As I look around the little house we were so happy in
I think of all the happy times we'll never see again
Then I break down and start to cry, the children ask what for
I can't find a way to tell them that daddy won't be home anymore

Each night before they go to sleep they fold their little hands
And say a prayer for daddy fighting in their far-off land
So tonight I'll help them say their prayers like I've always done before
God give me courage to tell them that daddy won't be home anymore

But honey, as for me there'll never be another man
And I'll bring our children up the best way that I can
You died for what you thought was right that much I know for sure
But the children just can't understand why daddy won't be home anymore
No, the children just don't understand why daddy won't be home anymore
