Daddy Gone to War

I tried to tell him daddy, the war is not a place to be.

You have a family that loves you and you need to take care of me.

And if you go there anyways and get hurt and killed,

I will never forgive you, my life won't be fulfilled.

I don't want that car to pull up in our drive was dad.

It will only make me angrier and make momma' sad.

You don't need to be a hero for this little town.

I need you to be here daddy for the years to come around.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is for everyone who has family or friends in the war! God Bless!
