  • Sometimes I think that war is necessary
    Every night I pray for peace on Earth
    I hand out my dollars to the homeless
    But believe that every able soul should work

    My father gave me my shotgun
    That I'll hand down to my son
    Try to teach him everything it means

    I'm a man of my convictions
    Call me wrong, call me right
    But I bring my better angels to every fight
    You may not like where I'm going
    But you sure know where I stand
    Hate me if you want to
    Love me if you can

    I stand by my right to speak freely
    But I worry 'bout what kids learn from TV
    And before all of debatin' turns to angry words and hate
    Sometimes we should just agree to disagree
    And I believe that Jesus looks down here and sees us
    And if you ask him he would say

    I'm a man of my convictions
    Call me wrong, call me right
    But I bring my better angels to every fight
    You may not like where I'm going
    But you sure know where I stand
    Hate me if you want to
    Love me if you can

    I'm a man of my convictions
    Call me wrong, call me right
    But I bring my better angels to every fight
    You may not like where I'm going
    But you sure know where I stand
    Hate me if you want to
    Love me if you can Writer/s: CHRIS WALLIN, CRAIG WISEMAN
