Heart and Ring

Genre: Folk/Acoustic


Heart and A Ring

My brother’s coming home today
with so much more than
when he went away
They say he’s army strong,
Not sure what it means
It must be so much better
than it seems

A Purple Heart
& a diamond ring
his girlfriend gave him back
yes he got all this
for serving his country in Iraq

Not sure yet how he feels
but he has a brand new set of wheels
He left us just a boy
now feels like half a man
They say someday I’ll understand.

Mom, she threw that letter away
She said they don’t care
what my boy had to pay
At least he’s still alive
that’s better than a box
We’re praying for the day he finally talks
