In the Early Morning Rain

Army Marching Cadence

Got a letter in the mail,
Got to war or go to jail.
Got a letter in the mail,
In the early morning rain.

I packed my bags, I kissed my wife.
And headed for the Air Force life.
I packed my bags, I kissed my wife,
In the early morning rain.

I told my son not to cry,
But I had tears in my eyes.
I told my son not to cry,
In the early morning rain.

With my weapon in my hand,
And a pocket full of sand,
With my weapon in my hand,
In the early morning rain.

Got the enemy to my front,
And the ocean to my rear.
Wounded dying’s all I hear,
In the early morning rain.

As I’m laying here to rest,
Caught a bullet in the chest,
Even though I’ve done my best,
In the early morning rain.

Tell my darling not to cry,
Cause I’ll never say good-bye.
Tell my darling not to cry,
In the early morning rain.

Many a soldier will die today,
Guess there’s nothing left to say.
So our children, they can play,
In the early morning rain.

Yes, now Sergeant I can see,
Why this training’s good for me.
Forever more we will be free,
In the early morning rain.
