Don't Tell Jeannie I'm Blind Misc. Traditional
In a hospital ward of poor veterans with respect I was spending some time As I walked to the young soldiers bedside His expression told me he was blind A heart felt handshake I offered As he bid me to spend him some time And asked would you be so kind mister To help wipe these tears from my mind Please write me a letter Jeannie I ask this request cause I'm blind I was wounded while fighting in action From the blast of an underground mine Chorus Please write and tell Jeannie I'm sorry But a new love I hope she will find Tell her now that I'm not free to marry But don't tell Jeannie I'm blind We planned to be wed in Virginia This dream now I must leave behind My vision of Jeannie has vanished Just a burden I'd be now I'm blind If Jeannie knew I still loved her Even though she knew I was blind We might still be wed in Virginia But regret would remain on her mind It's better to say that i've left her The hurt only lasts for a time Than to sacrifice life with a burden So don't tell Jeannie I'm blind Repeat Chorus Tell Jeannie I'm happy in my world Though the sun for me never shines She must never know I'm heart broken And don't tell Jeannie I'm blind With the pen in my fingers that trembled I'd written this soldiers reply As I signed off his name to this message I could feel the tears fill my eyes
