Lyrics

In a Flag

Written By: T. Elvis Pope

It's a sad and tearful story
of a man who went to war
He had a love back home in Ohio
But if she ever see's him again then
we'll praise the Lord
Cause Johnny, he's gone off to fight the war

Be it Allah, God, or Buddah
I don't know and I don't care
I don't think the maker's happy
when we kill
and even more in the name of war or jihad, I just can't share
that killing is the answer to a prayer

Little Tommy's dad was walkin' though that mess they call Iraq
when a mine exploded blowing off his legs
Little Tommy's dad won't stand again he won't walk or drive a car
and they wrapped his broken body in a flag
Like a million other soldiers who have died in all the wars
They wrapped his broken body in a flag

Now if we'd just have some patience with our fellow man
We could tolerate the differences we have
but we won't sit back and take it if you're gonna terrorize
though I can't understand the reasons why
Like a million other soldiers who have died thoughout the wars
They wrapped his broken body in a flag
