military man lyrics – jessie james

military man

school is out, where to now?
i’m packing up, heading south
one last box, one last look around
i remember being so excited
brand new friends that were so inviting
that’s the way it’s been since i was young

and i love nothing more
than seeing my daddy in his uniform

i’m the daughter of a military man
it’s the way of life and i understand
and i’m so proud to say
made me who i am today
i hope down the road i find a real good man
that’s done half the things that my daddy has
and it’s a beautiful thing, my sweet american dream
yeah

laying on our back looking up at the sky
watching f-15’s scream on by
while me and my brother and sister would play outside
shopping at the commissary, dancing at the military ball
yeah we did it all

as i look up when the anthem plays
you could hear a pin drop on that whole base
yeah

i’m the daughter of a military man
it’s the way of life and i understand
and i’m so proud to say
made me who i am today
i hope down the road i find a real good man
that’s done half the things that my daddy has
and it’s a beautiful thing, my sweet american dream
ooh yeah

home is where you hang your hat
that’s what mama says
and i’m fine with that

i’m the daughter of a military man
it’s the way of life and i understand
and i’m so proud to say
made me who i am today
i hope some day i find a real good man
that’s done half the things that my daddy has
and it’s a beautiful thing, ohhh
oh it’s a beautiful thing, my sweet american dream
my sweet american dream
