Soldier's Song Lyrics

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
