|Alternative Title||First line of text: I often sit in the moonlight and watch the clouds drift by;First line of chorus: I wonder if I am your only sweetheart|
VERSE 01: I often sit in the moonlight,/ And watch the clouds drift by,/ My heart is sad and lonely/ For the happy days gone by,/ I wonder if you're sleeping/ In the land far o'er the sea,/ Or are you dreaming, darling,/ Of home of love and me.
CHORUS: I wonder if I am your only sweetheart,/ I wonder if your heart is true to me,/ And my heart goes out in longing and in sorrow/ To my soldier boy, far across the sea.
VERSE 02: The newspapers print the story/ Of how you've fought and won,/ Of how you unfurled Old Glory/ O'er the land of the ruthless Hun,/ They tell of your dauntless courage/ In the face of the cruel foe,/ But never a word is printed/ Of the theme I'd like to know.
VERSE 03: You know I've always loved you,/ You know I always will,/ And down through the coming ages/ My heart will beat for you still,/ But France is a long way from me/ With its daughters fair and sweet,/ Oh, don't forget me, darling/ When those brave kind girls you meet.
