Au Revoir, But Not Good-Bye, Soldier Boy
Sung By Henry Burr & The Peerless Quartet




Though you're leaving me today, never fear
In my thoughts you'll always be ever near
There's a tear in ev'ry eye,
As the boys go marching by,
But they're out to do or die,
hear them cheer.
All the things you planned to do,
I am sure they will come true,
And I'll watch and wait for you, over here.

Chorus

Au revoir, but not Good-Bye, Soldier Boy.
Brush that tear drop from you eye, Soldier Boy.
When you're on the deep blue sea,
Will you sometimes think of me?
I'll be waiting anxiously, Soldier Boy.
Tho' we're many miles a part, Soldier Boy,
Keep my picture near your heart, Soldier Boy.
When you've won your victory,
God will bring you back to me,
Au revoir but not Good-Bye, Soldier Boy.

Though your mother old and grey 'waits you here
I will comfort her each day, never fear.
We all love you and you know
That we're proud to see you go,
But we're goin' to miss you so, over here.
When your fighting days are through,
For the old Red White and Blue,
We'll be here to welcome you, with a cheer.

Chorus

Au revoir, but not Good-Bye, Soldier Boy.
Brush that tear drop from you eye, Soldier Boy.
When you're on the deep blue sea,
Will you sometimes think of me?
I'll be waiting anxiously, Soldier Boy.
Tho' we're many miles a part, Soldier Boy,
Keep my picture near your heart, Soldier Boy.
When you've won your victory,
God will bring you back to me,
Au revoir but not Good-Bye, Soldier Boy.
