​Dear Darling (I Won't Be Coming Home)

This song is by Ronnie Dio & The Prophets and appears on the single Smiling By Day (Crying By Night) (1965).

Dear darling I won't be coming home
Dear darling I won't be coming home
Though I wish with all my heart I was on my way
But dear darling my country needs me now
And I couldn't tell them no when they asked me to stay

Oh I love you and I miss you
And I long to hold you in my arms again
Kiss our young one and tell him I miss him too
But I've got to stick it through until the end

Dear darling I'm praying for the day
We can see a peaceful world like we've never known
Where our son won't have to fight
Where he'll never have to write
Dear darling I won't be coming home
Dear darling I won't be coming home
