Fallen Soldier

John Ashby
Lingua: Inglese



I didn't have to come here
But my country needed me..
Patriotic duty
be all that I can be.
Came here just a boy
Grew up to be a man
Now I lay here leaving
Bloodstains in the sand

I ain't nobody's hero
Just momma's little boy
Standing up for freedom
Like my dad did before

I ain't looking for no glory
After I am gone
Just tell my folks I love them
When you take my body home..


You just don't think of dying
When you're barely turned eighteen
Courage is just a word
Until you face reality...
I did my best to stand up tall
And make my family proud
And as I lay here dying
I'm thinking of them now

I remember momma cryin'
As I walked out the door
Shakin' hands with my old man
As I went off to war..

If I could start all over
I'd be a better son
Please tell my folks I love all of them
When you take my body home


I didn't have to come here
But my country needed me
I served with pride and honor
With others just like me..

And as I lay here dying
I only want to know
Will you tell my folks I love them
When you take my body home

And as I lay here dying
I only want to know
Will you tell my folks I love them
When you take my body home..
