Fred Smith - Dust of Uruzgan
Dust of Uruzgan 2010
Up past from the Role 2, and down past the gate, out to the flight line
We stood in the sun, slouch hat and gun as two caskets passed us by

And followed the Padre, on to the Herc. And out in to the pale summer sky
We walked back to Poppy’s, and went back to work, with the Dust still in our eyes

So soldiers, sing me, a sapper’s lullaby
You give it your all, Knowing if you should fall
That all good things must die

These young engineers, whose job is to clear the roads that we may pass
Always out front, and when they bear the brunt, man it happens fast

Sapper D Smith had a wife and a son, the apple of his eye
Snowy Moerland was just 21, way to young to die

Soldiers, sing me, a sapper’s lullaby
You give it your all, Knowing if you should fall
That all good things must die

So go call your mother, call your old man, on the welfare line
Tell em you love em, while you still can, cause all good things must die

Soldiers, sing me, a sapper’s lullaby
You give it your all, Knowing if you should fall
That all good things must die
All good things must die
