(chorus:)
I told her no!
Baby you know I don't wanna go
Justine I ain't goin'
Down to no Red Cross store
She come down Justine, tell me I wanna talk with you in just a little while
Ain't you goin' down and fight for your wife and child?
(chorus)
She come down here and she shook my hand
She said Daddy I want you to go down there and fight for me like a man
(chorus)
She said the Red Cross people they treat you mighty fine
They mixing everything up with whiskey and wine
(chorus)
She come down here talkin' to me about the war
I told her baby I ain't done nothing to go there for
(chorus)
She come down here and she fell down on her knees
I said baby I have to look somewhere for your butter and cheese
(chorus)
She said Daddy I just come down here to tell you so
You better go running down to that Red Cross store
(chorus)
