    Lyrics

    When he went away for the last time
    It wasn't so easy, words were hard to find
    And the cows in the barn knew it was milking time
    Must of been real hard to leave everything behind,
    Over there a moonless night shivering a secret fright
    It wasn't so easy.
    And how many missions more, where to and what for?
    Ask the government, tell it to the cows in the barn

    Then there was the moon, what did the moon see?
    Saw the blade of grass in one boy's eye
    And pain that'll make you glad you're dying

    Hands that dribbled the basketball
    Voice that sang out of tune
    Love that ended too soon
    A nose that bled for better reasons.

    When he went away for the last time
    It wasn't so easy, words were hard to find
    And the cows in the barn knew it was milking time
    It was milking time but he was so far away,
    So far away that even prayers could not reach
    So he died there.

    When he came back for the last time
    It wasn't so easy, words were hard to find
    And we buried him before it was milking time
    The preacher said it was all right, the Lord is my Shepherd
    But I shall want to know why.
