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.
