Lyrics

You're My Soldier

Written By: Amy Jo

I'll never forget the feeling of grief
when I watched the 278 Troops leave
Watched a husband say goodbye to his best friend
kissed a little girl and his nearest of kin
I didn't go up to him
Didn't ask him not to leave
His little girl had big tears in her eyes
when she said, daddy are you leavin' me

(Chorus)
He's my soldier, he's my friend
even though I don't know him
He's fightin' this war with his heart you see
for his brothers, his sisters, for you, and for me
He's my soldier, he's my friend
even though I don't know him
I may not be the one that's on his mind
but he's fightin' for me each and everytime
You're my soldier, you're my friend

As he turns to leave
there's a tear in his eye
With a baby on the way
and a lonely wife
It's the chance he has to take
It's the decision that he made
As he boards the bus he turns to her
and says "God, I'm gonna miss you"
You have to promise me when the baby comes
Tell her daddy loves her too

(Chorus)

Do you really think that you'd be willing to leave
the comfort of home and your own family
These brave men keep America free
and our homeland safe for you and me

(Chorus)
