A Candle in the Window

 

My darlin’, you’re so far away,

Fightin’ for our country ev’ryday,

It’s Christmas, and I wish you were here,

To warm my heart and to calm my fear.

 

CHORUS:

There’s a hurtin’ in my heart,

And there are tears in my eyes,

‘Cuz I know Christmas will be without you.

But I’ll hang a stockin’ for you,

Tie a yellow ribbon ’round the tree,

And place a candle in the window, too.

 

It broke my heart when we said good-bye,

It took all that I had not to cry.

It seems so long since I last saw you,

Now Christmas is here, and I feel so blue.

 

CHORUS:

There’s a hurtin’ in my heart,

And there are tears in my eyes,

‘Cuz I know Christmas will be without you.

But I’ll hang a stockin’ for you,

Tie a yellow ribbon ’round the tree,

And place a candle in the window, too.

 

It’s terrible that we’re apart,

It’s like an arrow that’s pierced my heart.

Christmas is something for us to share,

But we can’t do that when you’re over there.

 

CHORUS:

There’s a hurtin’ in my heart,

And there are tears in my eyes,

‘Cuz I know Christmas will be without you.

But I’ll hang a stockin’ for you,

Tie a yellow ribbon ’round the tree,

And place a candle in the window, too.

 

Maybe if I’m very, very good,

If I do all the right things that I should,

My wish will go into God’s ear,

And you’ll be with me on Christmas next year.

 

CHORUS:

There’s a hurtin’ in my heart,

And there are tears in my eyes,

‘Cuz I know Christmas will be without you.

But I’ll hang a stockin’ for you,

Tie a yellow ribbon ’round the tree,

And place a candle in the window, too.
