Lyr. Add: DON'T CRY, FRENCHY, DON'T CRY
Words Joe Young & Sam M. Lewis, Music Walter Donaldson. 1919

They met while clouds were hanging over Flanders,
A soldier's glance; a war romance;
But now he's leaving her alone in Flanders
And he softly whispers to his maid of France:

Chorus-
Don't cry, Frenchy, don't cry,
When you kiss me good-bye,
I will always keep the Fleur-de-lis, dear,
You gave to me dear,
So dry your eye.
Sometime, Frenchy, sometime,
We'll hear wedding bells chime,
Oh please don't cry, Frenchy, don't cry, don't cry;
Until we meet again, good-bye, good-bye!

The peaceful stars will heal the scars of Flanders,
One tiny spark; will light the dark;
For it will bring a message back to Flanders,
Just a word of love to you, my Joan of Arc:

Chorus-
