Lyrics

Baghdad Blues

Written By: Kevin W. Peery

V1

For eleven months
I've been in Iraq
Would gladly pay
If I could buy my time back

The reasons unclear
Why we're in this fight
Cause Washington says so
Don't make it right

Chorus:

Got the Baghdad Blues
As a car bomb explodes
Lost six of my friends
On the same damn roads

Got the Baghdad Blues
In a hail of gunfire
The cost is mounting
and it's only getting higher

V2

The Pentagon says
It's the price we pay
Freedoms not cheap
For anyone today

Don't forget 9/11
In the same dark voice
Then they nod their head
Like we really had a choice

REPEAT CHORUS---

V3

Who's the enemy?
What's our goal?
Do we fight for oil?
or did we sell our soul?

The politics of war
Contracts and greed
The fruit is spoiled
Before we plant our seed

Bridge Guitar Solo Here----

V4

Letters from home
Don't read the same
When things go bad
We're the only ones they blame

Well pointing fingers
Won't win this fight
When I load my gun
And I head out tonight

REPEAT CHORUS------
