When Will They Come Home

Scott F. Johnson
Language: English



[2007]
Songwriter: Scott F. Johnson

Scott Johnson wrote When Will They Come Home just after President Bush's proposal to send more troops to Iraq in January 2007. 'I started wondering when the troops would ever come home and decided to write the song from the perspective of a parent who just wanted their son and the other troops to come home.'
I heard the news today on the radio
Twenty thousand more are going to the show
When will they come home ?

It's been three years or more since I've seen my son
Don't they know he's my only one.
When will they come home ?

The people sending them they don't seem to care
They send them off to fight over there
When will they come home…

It doesn't seem to matter what we say
They send them off over there anyway
When will they come home…

Well if you want to send some more then send your own
I wanna see my boy come home
When will they come home ?

Why do they have to go fight in a war
When we don't even know what they are fighting for
When will they come home ?

If you can hear me now then sing along
Ask the politicians to answer my song
When will they come home ?

When will they come home…

When will they come home…

When
Will they
Come home…
