Title
Keep a place on the table for Jack
Additional title: Their loving hearts were yearning they longed for his returning, Altho' it seemed he never would come back, Still the future might be better, for he wrote in his letter, "Keep a place at the table for Jack." [first line of chorus]
Additional title: There's a story sometimes heard of a boy who kept his word, When misfortune came to those he lov'd the best, He was told that far away fortune would be his some day, In the glorious land of promise called "the West." [first line]
