Can anyone tell me who wrote or sang this 1950s/1960s country/folk song?

Throw My War Toys Away

Since I was a young lad
High as Pappys knee
Played no sports or silly games
It was Army life for me

Puddin'? gun, tin can hat
Stripes upon my sleeve
Played from dawn to setting sun
Runnin' through the trees

Then the day when in the mail
A letter came for me
Said they needed fightin' men
To keep our country free

No more playing silly games
I knew this was for real
Flying planes and driving jeeps
I'd be at the wheel

Once I stepped in a war torn land
Many miles from home
Walkin' twenty miles a day
Sleepin' in the cold

Now one last wish is all I ask
When I get back home
Throw my war toys all away
And keep my bedroom warm

Throw my war toys all away
And keep my bedroom warm
