The Best We Can

Written By: Michael Allfrey

This is a story, of a warrior I once knew
He was a good boy, just like me and you
When we got called away, to fight in another land

We did the best we can
We did the best we can

But when we came home, to find new aches and pain
The politicians were, gettin ready to make a change
The doctors and lawyers, their mindset was the same

There's nothing here, we're not to blame
There's nothing here, we're not to blame

Oh, this always seems to happen, time and time again
When the warrior goes away, he's the politician's friend
But when he comes home, no one will take a stand

We need to do, the best we can
We need to do, the best we can

It can only happen in America, the land of free will
A veteran sleeps on a steam grate, outside of Capital Hill
And if you've never been there, you don't know what you owe this man

He did the best he can
He did the best he can
