THIS IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR (Sam H Stept (m) / Edgar De Lange (l) 1942) Vaughn Monroe and his Orchestra 1942 Also sung by: Evelyn Kaye Klein The Ink Spots Jimmy Dorsey and his Orchestra Leslie A. Hutchinson Karen Elson Bob Eberly Donald Peers I saw a peaceful old valley With a carpet of corn on the floor And I heard a voice within me whisper This is worth fighting for. I saw a little old cabin And the river that flowed by the door And I heard a voice within me whisper This is worth fighting for. Didn't I build that cabin Didn't I plant that corn Didn't my folks before me Fight for this country, before I was born. I gathered my loved ones around me And I gazed at each face I adore Then I heard that voice within me thunder This is worth fighting for. (bridge) Didn't I build that cabin Didn't I plant that corn Didn't my folks before me Fight for this country, before I was born. I gathered my loved ones around me And I gazed at each face I adore Then I heard that voice within me thunder This is worth fighting for. NOTES: From the B & W Universal Pictures musical ‘When Johnny Comes Marching Home’ released December 24 1942. Director: Chris Lamonts Leads: Allan Jones / Jane Frazee / Gloria Jean / Donald O’Connor (Transcribed by David Story - October 2013)
