Zac Brown Band - Dress Blues

rate me

(Verse)

What can u see from ur window?

I can't see anythin' from mine

Flags on the side of the highway

And scripture on grocery store signs

Maybe eighteen was too early

Maybe thirty or forty is too

Did u get ur chance to make peace with the man

Befo' he sent down his angels for u?

(Chorus)

Mamas & grandmamas luv u

Cos' that's all they know how to do

You neva planned on the bombs in the sand

Or sleepin' in ur dress blues

(Verse 2)

Your wife said this all would be funny

When you came back home in a week

You'd turn twenty-two & we'd celebrate u

In a bar or a tent by the creek

Your baby would just about be here

Your very last tour would be up

But you won't be back, they're all dressin' in black

Drinkin' sweet tea in styrofoam cups

(Chorus)

Mamas & grandmamas luv u

American boys hate to lose

You neva planed on the bombs in the sand

Or sleeping in ur dress blues

(Verse 2)

Now the high school gymnasium's ready

Full of flowers & old legionnaires

Nobody showed up to protest

They just sniffle & stare

There's red, white, & blue in the rafters

And there's silent old men from the corps

What did they say when they shipped u away

To give all in some God awful war?

(Chorus)

Nobody here could forget u

You showed us what we had to lose

You neva planned on the bombs in the sand

Or sleepin' in ur dress blues

No, no u neva planned on the bombs in the sand

Or sleepin' in ur dress blues
