If You’re Reading This
If you’re reading this
My Momma’s sittin’ there
Looks like I only got a one way ticket over here.
Sure wish I
Could give you one more kiss
And War was just a game we played when we were kids.
I’m laying down my gun
I’m hanging up my boots
I’m up here with God and we’re both watching 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
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home
If you’re reading 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
Stand up for the innocent and the weak
I’m laying down my gun
I’m hanging up my boots
Tell Dad I don’t regret that I followed in his shoes.
-Tim McGraw
We honor you, James Hunt.
