WE WAS THERE
by Rick McCarty

We was there
To comfort your sons and daughters.

We was there
To hold their hands at the last moment.

We was there
For the last tear to fall.

We was there
When they asked for forgiveness.

We was there
When they seen their last light.

We was there
When God come for them,

'Cause we was there
When their lives ended.

We was the soldiers
That fought beside them.

We was there.

'Cause I held my best friends hand
When his life ended.

'Cause I was there
When my life ended.
