Here's how I hear it. My changes are in boldface.

SOLDIER GIRL
Diana Jones

It is the morning I must leave
My love once sat behind me
Remember me each day I'm gone
And send a prayer,
All for the love of your soldier girl

I know not where the wind will blow
I only know that I will follow
To where the guns and tanks shall roll
So far from home
All for the love of your soldier girl
All for the love, all for the love of your soldier girl

A rich girl she will go to school
A poor girl has few chances
To fight the demon poverty, for her family
All for the love of your soldier girl
All for the love, all for the love of your soldier girl

I walk beside my brother there
My sister in her shoes
If faltered we return today*
From strains of war of us take care
All for the love of your soldier girl
All for the love, all for the love of your soldier girl
All for the love, all for the love of your soldier girl
