' A Soldier's Sacrifice... '

Rating: 2.4
Goodbye My Love, Goodbye
I Won’t Be Coming Home
Goodbye My Life, Goodbye
To All That I Have Known …

“ They Said For The Growth Of Freedom
I’m Lying On A Mound
My Tears and Sweat and Blood
Irrigates This Battleground ”

Is This What Was Meant
When They Speak of Glory Bound?
Why Do I Feel A Loss
If Valor Is What I Found?

Goodbye My Dreams, Goodbye
To All That I Could Be
Goodbye Sweet Jesus, Goodbye
Please Remember Me …

I’m Only 23 …
I Had So Much To Give
And Now That I’ve Given It …
I Find I Want To Live!

I’m Laying Down My Body
For Country and Hometown
I Think I Hear A 6-Shots Salute
From That Last Gunfire Round …

I’m Offering My Honor
Mom and Dad Will Be So Proud
But Now I Have To Wonder
Is This War Worth Being Plowed …

“ They Said For The Growth Of Freedom
I’m Lying On A Mound
My Tears and Sweat and Blood
Irrigates This Battleground ”

I’m Offering My Personal Best
For A Political Belief
I’m Offering Up My Soul
All For The Sake Of Peace …

“ They Said For The Growth Of Freedom
I’m Lying On A Mound
My Tears and Sweat and Blood
Irrigates This Battleground ”

I Offered Up My Shoulder
So Justice Could Stand Taller
To Straighten Twisted Disorder
We Patrol A Foreign Border …

I Offered Up My Strength
So They Could Try To Make Some Sense
And Watch Out For Evils In This World
They Said They’d Watch Over My Girl …

Goodbye Blue Sky, Goodbye
The Last Thing That I See
Goodbye Sunlight, Goodbye
This Soldier Has To Leave …

“ They Said For The Growth Of Freedom
I’m Lying On A Mound
My Tears and Sweat and Blood
Irrigates This Battleground ”
