A Dear John, Oh, how I E7 hate to write 
Dear John, I must let you know A tonight 
That my love for you has A7 died 
Away, like D grass upon the lawn 
And E7 tonight I'll wed another, Dear A John. 
Narration: (Chorus melody played in background)  
A I was overseas in battle 
When the E7 postman came to me 
And he handed me a letter 
I was happy as can be A 
For the fighting was all over 
And the D battle just had been won 
Then I E7 opened up the letter 
And it started, Dear A John. 
Will you please send back my picture 
My husband wants it now 
When I tell you who I'm wedding 
You won't care, dear, anyhow  
Now the ceremony has started 
And I'll wed your brother, Don 
Will you wish us happiness, forever 
Dear John. 

Written by Bill Burton/Fuzzy Owen/Lewis Talley
