BattleSong

I’ve been on the road so long
This is all I can afford to give
This sad and lonely battlesong
Of a soldier marching in the war to live

Pick ’em up and put ’em down
My soul’s worn thinner than my smile
These boots were made to cover ground
I think that I’d like to lay ’em down awhile

You won’t let the sun go down again
You remind me who I’ve always been
Just a hometown hero coming back to be where I belong

No more battlesongs

Worn and weary, here I stand
Your open arms are all I’m longing for
I leave behind the foreign lands
So glad to finally wash up on your shore

‘Cause you won’t let the sun go down again
You remind me who I’ve always been
Just a hometown hero coming back to be where I belong

No more battlesongs
No more battlesongs

I see buildings, houses down the street
Friendly strangers where we used to meet
And it feels like a reunion of the souls I’ll greet someday
All the ones I passed along the way

I am coming…coming home
I am coming…coming home
I am coming…coming home

You won’t let the sun go down again
You remind me who I’ve always been
Just a hometown hero coming back to be where I belong

You won’t let the sun go down again
You remind me who I’ve always been
Just a hometown hero coming back to be where I belong

No more battlesongs
No more battlesongs
No more battlesongs
