Their Hearts Are Over Here
Words and Music by George M. Cohan
Published 1918 by Waterson, Berlin & Snyder Co.

[Verse 1]
I hear an echo clear, from over there, 'way over here.
A song is in the air, 'way over there and yet it's near.
I can hear that old melody,Like a mesage over the sea.
Listen, you will hear it too,

If your fancy carries with me;
"Give my regards to Broadway,"
I can hear it plain as can be.

[Chorus]
The boys are over there,
But their hearts are over here;
For they left them behind,
When they softly whispered "Goodbye, dear."

A song is in the air,
Like a pray'r that has a tear.
"Give my regards to Broadway,"
I can hear them sing over here.


[Verse 2]
Again I hear a strain, an old refrain, it's very plain.
I hear the echo clear, from over there 'way over here.
Just another old melody That they're singing over the sea.
Listen you will hear it too,

If your fancy carries with me;
"Give my regards to Broadway,"
I can hear it plain as can be.

[Repeat Chorus]
