There’s a Girl in Chateau Thierry

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

One September I’ll remember

Never to forget.

Battle-weary, Chateau Thierry,

That was where we met.

“Mong the ruins I still can see

Suzette smiling out at me,–

Somehow it just had to be

This love that bids me tell you:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

     There’s a girl in Chateau Thierry,

     A girl who waits for me.

     There’s a weary heart made cheery,

     By love and victory.

     And her buddy boy’s devotion,

     Burns a trail across the ocean,

     To Chateau Theirry, where she waits for me.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Cherie, Cherie, I’m so very

Sad here over the sea.

Battle weary, Chateau Thierry,

Seems much brighter to me.

Loved ones ask– on every hand,–

Why I’m sad in Yankee land,–

Maybe they would understand

If I could only tell them:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

     There’s a girl in Chateau Thierry,

     A girl who waits for me.

     There’s a weary heart made cheery,

     By love and victory.

     And her buddy boy’s devotion,

     Burns a trail across the ocean,

     To Chateau Theirry, where she waits for me,

     Across the sea.
