about

I wrote this song while deployed to Northern Iraq in 2010 with B Trp 1/278th ACR.

lyrics

Well I wake up in the morning
Put my boots on Like everybody does
Grab my hat as I hit the door
But there's something different
There's something more

I've got bullets in my pocket
And a rifle in my hand
As I roll outside the wire
I know it might be my last stand
All the thoughts inside my head
Are mine and mine alone
The mission that's before me
And the ones I leave at home

Though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow may death fear me
And when I run into the fire
Lord may your hand lead and guide me

I've got bullets in my pocket
And a rifle in my hand
As I roll outside the wire
I know it might be my last stand
All the thoughts inside my head
Are mine and mine alone
The mission that's before me
And the ones I leave at home

If I fall carry me home
Shed a tear but know I'm not alone
For those who fought and fell before me
Will be waiting to welcome me home

I've got bullets in my pocket
And a rifle in my hand
As I roll outside the wire
I know it might be my last stand
All the thoughts inside my head
Are mine and mine alone
The mission that's before me
And the ones I leave at home

The ones I leave at home
