  • My daddy was a soldier in a foreign war
    But he doesn't like to talk about it any more
    He kept a picture of my mama right by his heart
    He'd give it one last look before the fighting would start
    He said all I ask is that you don't forget
    Cause the wars not over when the fighting ends

    There's a part of me that will always be
    Just a boy in a hole with an M-16
    Airborne ranger infantry

    I left my best friend lying in a pool of blood
    While I crawled away through the brush and mud
    If I could choose to go back again
    I'd die lying there next to him
    I still see his face when I close my eyes
    As I won't forget his sacrifice

    There's a part of me that will always be
    Just a boy in a hole with an M-16
    Airborne ranger infantry

    I didn't do it for the money didn't do it for fame
    I didn't do it so the world would remember my name
    I did it for my family and my country,
    And my brothers who died right next to me.

    And all we ask is that you don't forget
    Cause the wars not over when the fighting ends
    There's a part of us that will always be
    Just boys in a hole with our M-16s

    Honoring souls and memories
