Dear Uncle Sam

This song is by Loretta Lynn and appears on the album I Like 'Em Country (1966).

Dear Uncle Sam,
I know you're a busy man,
And tonight I write to you
Through tears with a tremblin' hand.

My darlin' answered when
He got that call from you.
You said you really need him
But you don't need him like I do.

Don't misunderstand
I know he's fighting for our land
I really love my country
But I also love my man.
He proudly wears the colors
Of the ole red, white, and blue
While I wear a heartache
Since he left me for you.

Dear Uncle Sam
I just got your telegram
And I can't believe that this is me
Shakin like I am
For it said
"I'm sorry to inform you..."
