Stories and books by Howard L Johnson, 

THING CALLED WAR 
    
    MOMMA SEARCHED ALL NIGHT FOR THE RIGHT WORDS TO SAY
    SHE DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO TELL US DADDY'S GOING AWAY
    AT THE AGE OF TWO I DIDN'T KNOW A THREE LETTER WORD LIKE WAR
    AT THE AGE OF SEVEN I STILL DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THE FIGHTING WAS FOR
   
    THEN I SEEN MY DADDY HE WAS WAVING GOOD-BYE
    THAT'S THE FIRST TIME WE SAW OUR MOMMA CRY
    HE WAS A PATRIOT, GOOD SOILDER THROUGH AND THROUGH
    HE LIVED AND FOUGHT HIS LIFE FOR THE RED, WHITE & BLUE
   
    STILL GOT THE OLD FISHING POLE THAT HE BOUGHT
    STILL GOT MY FIRST RIFLE NEVER TOOK MY FIRST SHOT
    LAST TIME I SAW MY DADDY HE WAS WAVING GOOD-BYE
    THAT'S THE FIRST TIME I SAW MOMMA CRY
   
    HUSH LITTLE BABY DON'T YOU CRY
    MOMMAS GONNA SING YOU A LULLABY
    ONE THAT'S GONNA LAST FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
    REST OF YOUR LIFE
   
    I REMEMBER WHEN THEY DRAPED THE FLAG OVER MY DADDY'S GRAVE
    FIRED ALL THE GUNS PLANES FLEW OVER AND I WAIVED
    THEY SAID HE DIED A HERO, A MAN THAT WAS REALLY BRAVE
    HE GAVE HIS LIFE TO SAVE THE COUNTRY FOR YOU AND ME
    HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR HIS COUNTRY TIS' OF THEE
   
    SAID HUSH LITTLE SOILDER DON'T YOU CRY
    MOMMAS GONNA SING YOU A LULLABY
    ONE THAT'S GONNA TAKE YOU
    INTO YOUR NEXT LIFE. BABY BYE BYE
   
    LAST TIME I SAW MY DADDY,
    HE WAS FLYING TO THE SKY
    THAT'S THE FIRST TIME I HAD TEARS IN MY EYE
    MOMMA DON'T CRY, DADDY BYE BYE
   
    HUSH LITTLE DARLING DON'T YOU CRY
    MOMMAS GONNA SING YOU A LULLABY
    SING IT LIKE THE ANGELS
    FLOAT ON BY IN THE NIGHT
    MOMMA DON'T CRY, DADDY GOOD-BYE
