New Lyric- Home from the WarNew Lyric 'Home from the War'

'Home from the War'

copyright 2012 by Rick Reiley

Three months til Christmas

Then we'll see her again

If the war doesn't interfere

With her plans to fly in

But war keeps you guessing

You know what that means

Someimes it takes the wind out of

Our sweetest dreams

(Refrain)

'Jingle Bells' takes on a whole new meaning

It gives a whole new complexion to 'Silent Night'

When you're in the dark and wondering

If you'lll be among the lucky ones

On Christmas night

Two months til Christmas

We can hardly wait

So much joy to be heaped

On our Christmas plate

We want to hug her

When she walks through that door

When she finally makes it

Home from the war

(Refrain)

'Jingle Bells' takes on a whole new meaning

It gives a whole new complexion to 'Silent Night'

When you're in the dark and wondering

If you'lll be among the lucky ones

On Christmas night

One month til Christmas

We're on needles and pins

One week and counting

Til Christmas begins

Now here comes a knock

At our front door

Could she be early?

Or could it be news from the war...............

yes, this is the RR from Oklahoma. Rick lives in Cushing, Oklahoma where he is not only the proud father of one of our fine service people, he is an excellent singer songwriter.

This made me tear up.  Is this the RR from Oklahoma?  The more I hear about him, the more I like him.
