Playing his Part

Chorus

Oh, she gets lonely most every evenin’

She hears him callin’ deep in her heart

He was her only though she knew he’d be leavin’

Just like his father, playing his part

 

1) A soldier for glory, he walked out her door

Lookin’ for the meaning that men find in war

Another generation, another foreign shore

Finally she wonders what it’s for         Chorus

 

2) Once she was proud of the flag in the breeze

Her husband, her son with stripes on their sleeves

Losing them both is too much to grieve

It’s driven her down to her knees

 

Last Chorus

Oh, she gets lonely when it’s comin’ on evenin’

She knows he’s fallin’ deep in her heart

He was her only though she knew he’d be leavin’

Just like his father, playing his part (2x)
