lyrics

Good dear Father paced around
The twenty-ninth before the first
And while his footsteps made such a sound
His words could scarcely be heard

He said, only for a couple, only for a couple of months
Then she will come home
My little girl

But go, you owe it to us all he said
To take ahold of what I could not give
You owe it to us all he said

Morning Father, sat and stared
A seat once filled with good company
And though his coffee mug begged more to bear
His prayers sent to the Atlantic Line

He prayed, only for a couple, only for a couple of months
Then she will come home
My little girl

But go, you owe it to us all he said
To take ahold of what I could not give
You owe it to us all he said
