Kitty Wells — Searching For A Soldier's Grave lyrics

Somewhere here among these many thousands
Of Americans who all died true and brave
That's where I know I'll find him resting
So I'm here I'm searching for his grave.

You ask me stranger why I made this journey
Why I crossed three thousand miles of rolling waves
Like many others my darling's killed in action
That's why I'm here I'm searching for his grave.

Somewhere here among these many thousands
Of Americans who all died true and brave
That's where I know I'll find him resting
So I'm here I'm searching for his grave.

--- Instrumental ---

When I come to the spot where he's sleeping
I know it will cause more heartaches inside
But I long to be by his side once more and tell him
Tell him that I love him and will until I die.

Somewhere here among these many thousands
Of Americans who all died true and brave
That's where I know I'll find him resting
So I'm here I'm searching for his grave...
