Corey Smith - Stand Our Ground

rate me

Will you take me up to Rose Hill<br />

When you lay my body low<br />

Wrap me in a flag, throw some flowers on the ground<br />

Say a few words then let me go<br />

There's no need to defend my honor<br />

Or justify the life I gave<br />

There's no need for the pictures of my happy childhood there<br />

Please don't pour salt upon my grave<br />

<br />

I knew long ago that I would be the one<br />

To brandish my sword should they beat those battle drums<br />

I stood my ground, I stood for something worth falling for<br />

<br />

Ask my father to forgive me<br />

I know he didn't understand<br />

He worked too hard for way too many years<br />

To lose his only boy in a foreign sand<br />

No doubt, he is angry<br />

No doubt where he'll place the blame<br />

But don't let him fall apart, Mama, don't let him go back to the pills<br />

Only time will ease the pain<br />

<br />

I died a patriot, a soldier just like him<br />

Fought like he taught me to, until the very end<br />

I stood my ground, I stood for something worth falling for<br />

<br />

Take my stripes and take my medals<br />

Take my cross and these dog tags, too<br />

Put 'em in a package and stain it with your tears<br />

Send it up to Pennsylvania Avenue<br />

My last regards to the man in charge<br />

Let him know I served my country well<br />

Yeah, he was right behind me all the way to Kandahar<br />

The night my broken body fell<br />

<br />

Don't let a day go by without a peaceful prayer<br />

For my brothers and my sisters still fighting over there<br />

They stand their ground, <br />

They stand for something worth falling for
