Hank Snow – The Blind Boy's Dog lyrics

I gave my dog to Uncle Sam in 1943
He sailed across the sea and died for liberty
Now that you are sending hero's home I just can't understand
Why don't you send my dog home Uncle Sam?

It's true no more he'll lead me as he did in days of yore
He'll never be a blind boy's pal no more
But I know that he gets lonesome sleeping in some distant land
Please won't you send my dog home Uncle Sam?

--- Instrumental ---

I gave my dog to Uncle Sam he was so strong and smart
We knew right from the start that we should do our part
They wrote he died a hero t'was in the telegram
Please won't you send my dog home Uncle Sam?

He'll sleep beneath Old Glory right here on daddy's farm
I'll be close by to keep him from all harm
No one knows how much I miss him and how lonesome now I am
Please won't you send my dog home Uncle Sam?...
