Goodbye Broadway Hello France

This song is by American Quartet and appears on the compilation Over There! (2011).

Good-bye New York town, good-bye Miss Liberty
Your light of freedom will guide us across the sea
Ev'ry soldier's sweetheart biding good-bye
Ev'ry soldier's mother drying her eye
Cheer up we'll soon be there
Singing this Yan-kee air:

Good-bye Broadway, Hello France
We're ten million strong
Good-bye sweethearts, wives and mothers
It won't take us long
Don't you worry while we're there
It's for you we're fighting too
So Good-bye Broadway, Hello France
We're going to square our debt to you

Vive Pershing is the cry across the sea
We're united in this fight for liberty
France sent us a soldier, brave La Fayette
Whose deeds and fame we cannot forget
Now that we have the chance
We'll pay our debt to France

Good-bye Broadway, Hello France
We're ten million strong
Good-bye sweethearts, wives and mothers
It won't take us long
Don't you worry while we're there
It's you we're fighting for
So Good-bye Broadway, Hello France
We're going to help you win this war
