Dear Uncle Sam I know you're a busy man
And tonight I write to you through tears with a trembling hand
My darling answered when he got that call from you
You said you really need him but you don't need him like I do
Don't misunderstand I know he's fighting for our land
I really love my country but I also love my man
He proudly wears the colors of the old red white and blue
While I wear a heartache since he left me for you
[ trumpet ]
Dear Uncle Sam I just got your telegram
And I can't believe that this is me shaking like I am
For it said I'm sorry to inform you
