Corey Smith - Stand My Ground

rate me

Will You take me up to rose hill

When you lay my body low

wrap me in a flag and throw some flowers on the ground

say a few words and then let me go,

there's no need to defend my honor

or justify the life i gave

there's no need for the pictures of my happy childhood there please

don't pour salt upon my grave

i knew long ago that i would be the one

to brandish my sword should they beat those battle drums, ohhh

I stood my ground

i stood for something,

worth falling for

Ask my father to forgive me, i know he didn't understand

he worked to hard for way to many years to lose his boy in a foreign sand

there is no doubt he is angry, theres no doubt where he'll place the blame

but don't let him fall apart mama, don't let him go back to those pills

only time will ease the pain, i died a patriot a soldier just like him

fought like he taught me to until the very end, ohh

i stood my ground

i stood for something

worth falling for yeah yeah

worth falling for

i hope this war is worth dying for

i hope this war is worth dying for

i hope this war is worth dying for

Take my strips and take my medals

take my cross and these dogtags too

put em in a package stained with your tears

send em up to pennsylvania ave

my last regards to the man in charge

let him know i served my country well

yeah he was right behind me all the way to kandahar

the night my broken body fell

don't let a day go by without a peaceful prayer

for my brothers and my sisters still fighting over there

they stand their ground

they stand for something

worth falling for yeah x2

i hope this war is worth dying for

i hope this war is worth dying for

worth dying for

i hope this war is worth dying for

i hope this war is worth dying for

i hope this war is worth dying for
