Help with Song Lyrics
When I was younger, my mother used to sing a song to me (her mother sang it to her also) I don’t know the name but it has some thing to do with a child writing a letter to the President asking him not to let her father go to war. It’s not an Irish Trad song but I have been trying to get hold of it for some time.
“ Dear Mr. President dont let my daddy go, Dear Mr President I love my daddy so….”
It also possibly mentions her friend Jim whos father went to the war and never returned.
Thats all I know of it and I also know the air. If any one could please help me get the lyrics and where it has originated from I would greatly appreciate it.
