      About "Missing in Action"

      Lyrics for Ernest Tubb - "Missing in Action"

      The warship had landed and night come ashore
      The fighting was over for me ever more
      For I had been wounded they left me forget
      A stone for my pillow and snow for my bed

      The enemy found me and took me away and made me a prisoner of war so they say
      But God in his mercy was with me one day the gate was left open and I ran away
      I returned to the old home my sweet wife to see
      The home I had built for my darling and me

      The door I then opened and there on the stand I saw a picture of her and the man
      The clothes she was wearing told me the sad tale
      My darling was wearing a new bridal veil
      Then I found a letter and these words I read missing in action she thought I was dead

      So I kissed her picture and whispered goodbye
      My poor heart was breaking but my eyes were dry
      I knew it was too late for her now to learn
      I knew she must never know I had returned

      A vagabond dreamer forever I'll roam
      Because there was no one to welcome me home
      The face of my darling no more I shall see for missing in action forever I'll be
