researching WWII songs. This is a Floyd Tillman hit from about 1943. It was part of the Tokyo Rose broadcasts to demoralize US troops. Need chords too.

As sung by Floyd Tillman

A thousand miles, dear, a thousand more
Across the waters, across the shore
I'll say a prayer, dear, for yours and mine
Please think of me, dear, each night at nine

I'll hold your picture close to my heart
It takes your place, dear, while we're apart
Helps to remind me that you're still mine
To feel your nearness each night at nine

The bugle's playing, out goes the lights
Gee, but it's lonely these army nights
Go tell the kiddies I'm doin' fine
Give them my love, dear, each night at nine

(I think Marty Robbins did one more verse, sorry, no chords)
