From the #Veteran Songs project: After Duane comes home from the Korean war, he finds direction through discovering faith in his religion and the love of his life.
 
Off to Korea
And then I was coming back
What was I gonna do, then
The Lord brought Ellie

We asked the Lord for 25 years
He gave us 43
If you rely on Him
He will always supply
 
We met over supper
Love at first sight they said
That’s what it was, when
The Lord brought Ellie
 
We asked the Lord…
 
So when I got married
I not only got a wife
I got a family when
The Lord brought Ellie
 
We asked the Lord…
 
Ellie passed away and
A cat showed up on the deck
Checking up on me, they say
That was Ellie
 
We asked the Lord…
