Goodbye Maria I'm Off to Korea (Don Larkin, Joe Simpson, and Ken O'Rourke) It wasn't long ago that we met in Italy I was a G.I. Joe, and you were Bella Marie Soon we were married and then we sailed away Across the ocean blue to my home in I-O-Way There we've been living happy as can be Raising fields of corn and a small family But now Maria, you must be brave, and smile We're in another fight, so I must leave you for awhile. For now it's: Goodbye Maria, I'm off to Korea Far across the sea It's the same old story, it's up to Old Glory To win another fight for liberty So, keep the home fires burning And it won't be long, until I'll be returning Good Maria, though I'm off to Korea In my heart you'll always be my Marie.
