    Lyrics

    If you're readin' this
    My momma's sittin' there
    Looks like I only got a one way ticket over here.
    I sure wish I could give you one more kiss
    War was just a game we played when we were kids
    Well I'm layin' down my gun
    I'm hanging up my boots
    I'm up here with God and we're both watchin' over you

    So lay me down
    In that open field out on the edge of town
    And know my soul
    Is where my momma always prayed that it would go.
    If you're readin' this I'm already home.

    If you're readin' this
    Half way around the world
    I won't be there to see the birth of our little girl
    I hope she looks like you
    I hope she fights like me
    And stands up for the innocent and the weak
    I'm layin' down my gun,
    I'm hanging up my boots
    Tell dad I don't regret that I followed in his shoes

    So lay me down
    In that open field out on the edge of town
    And know my soul
    is where my momma always prayed that it would go
    If you're readin' this, I'm already hoooommmmmeeee

    If you're readin' this,
    There's gonna come a day
    You move on and find someone else and that's okay
    Just remember this
    I'm in a better place
    Soldiers live in peace and angels sing amazing grace

    So lay me down
    In that open field out on the edge of town
    And know my soul is where my momma always prayed that it would go
    If you're readin' this
    If you're readin' this
    I'm already home
