Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter said
A soldier's coming home."
The thing I love about this song is that it really is a true country song. It tells a story from beginning to end, and makes listeners cry. It has a traditional country production, yet still got to No. 1. By even as early as 2002, pop influence was growing really strong in country music, and it was amazing that this traditional song became one of the biggest songs.
