i just came back from a war lyrics – darryl worley

“i just came back from a war”

the first thing i did when that plane finally landed was kiss the ground
the next thing i did was to go find my friends down at the old hangout
drank some beer and talked a lot about old times
but when the booze finally hit billy joe grimes
he said i don’t know what it is, but you seem different to me

i said i just came back from a place where they hated me
and everything i stand for
a land where our brothers are dying for others who don’t even care anymore
if i’m not exactly the same good old boy that you ran around with before
i just came back from a war

the very next morning i took a walk through the neighborhood
i thought it’s been so long since i’ve been in a place where everything is good
people laughing and children were playing
and as i watched em i found myself praying
lord keep em safe here at home in the land of the free

cuz i just came back from a place where they hated me
and everything i stand for
a land where our brothers are dying for others who don’t even care anymore
if i’m not same little freckled face boy
that grew up in that house next door
i just came back from a war

i hope you cherish this sweet way of life
and i hope you know that it comes with a price

i just came back from a place where they hated me
and everything i stand for
a land where our brothers are dying for others who don’t even care anymore
chances are i never will be the same
i really don’t know anymore
i just came back from a war

i just came back from a war

[background]
you don’t know me [repeated]

i just came back from a war
