First Verse

So you’re leav-ing me to - day, Sol-dier boy.
And you’re go - ing far a - way, Sol - dier boy.
There’s a tear drop in your eye,
For its hard to say “Good - Bye”
But you’re out to do or die, Sol - dier boy.
All the things we planned to do,
I am sure will all come true,
And i’ll watch and wait for you, Sol - dier boy.

Second Verse

I am proud to see you go, Sol-dier boy.
And it makes me love you so, Sol-dier boy.
There’s your moth-er old and gray,
I will cheer her up each day,
And will always hope and pray, Sol - dier boy.
When your fight-ing days are through,
For the old Red White and Blue,
We’ll be here to wel-come you, Sol - dier boy.

Chorus

“Au-re - voir’but not“Good - Bye’,’ Sol-dier boy.
Brush that tear drop from your eye, Sol-dier boy.
When you’re on the deep blue sea,
Will you some-times think of me?
Ill be wait-ing anx-ious - ly, Sol-dier boy
Keep my pic - ture near your heart, Sol - dier boy.
When you've won your vic 0 tor - y, God will bring you back to me,
“Au-re - voir’ but not“Good - Bye’,’ Sol-dier boy.
