Lucinda Williams - Soldier's Song lyrics

Your rating:



I met my enemy today 

Baby sends the little one out to play 

Enemy shot two of my buddies down 

Baby rides the little one on the 

merry-go-round 



By my post, I'm standing guard 

Baby hopes for roses in the front yard 

I don't know my enemy's name 

Baby takes the little one to a 

baseball game 



Why am I in this God forsaken place? 

Baby washes the dirt off the 

little one's face 

Ten year olds in the killing fields 

Baby's planning the weekly meals 



Bodies in a muddy ditch 

Baby's got supper to fix 

My buddy's got a hole in his head 

Baby's getting the little one ready for bed 



Today I shot my enemy 

Baby gives the little one a hug for me 

Both my buddy's legs got blown off 

Baby tends to the little one's cough 



I stare down the barrel of a gun 

Baby's goin' out to have some fun 

I hear ringing in my ears 

Baby's face is all wet with tears 



I hear echoes of shots 

Baby's only thinkin' sweet thoughts 

Why the hell did they send me 

here to fight? 

Baby kisses my picture and turns 

off the light 



I can't look my enemy in the eye 

Baby tells the little one, daddy's 

gone bye-bye 

Today I took a bullet through the heart 

Baby's gonna have to make a 

brand new start 



I met my enemy today 

Baby sends the little one out to play 

Enemy shot two of my buddies down 

Baby rides the little one on the 

merry-go-round
