Subject: have you seen my daddy mr. soldier

Does anyone know the lyrics to this song. Thanks! I don't know the title of this song but some of the words go like this:

Have you seen my daddy Mr. Soldier Somewhere over there across the sea My mommy cries for him both night and day I know it would make her glad If you had seen my dad Did you seen my daddy over there.

The soldier eyes grew misty as he looked at the lad For it brought back a memory that time could not erase A soldier lost in battle The best friend he ever had And on his chest he carried a picture of this lad.

Recorded and Co-Written by Eddy Arnold...

DID YOU SEE MY DADDY OVER THERE
Recorded by: Eddy Arnold

A little boy tugged gently at a soldiers' khaki sleeve
He said forgive me mister, but you've been across, i believe
I see the purple heart you wear, it tells what you've been thru
Perhaps you know my daddy sir, 'cause he's a soldier, too

CHORUS
Did you see my daddy, Mister Soldier
When you were fighting over there?
I thought perhaps by chance, you met him there in france
Or somewhere over there across the sea;
It's been so long since daddy went away
My mommy longs for him both night and day
I know it would make her glad, if you had seen my dad
Did You See My Daddy Over There?

The soldiers eyes grew misty as he watched the boys' face
For it recalled a memory that time cannot erase
A buddy lost in action, the best pal he ever had
Til death he carried o'er his heart a picture of this lad.

CHORUS
