Song Lyrics

Got a song about a soldier,

ridin` somewhere on a train

empty sleeve pinned to his shoulder

and some pills to ease the pain

Started drinkin` in El Paso,

he was drunk in San Antone,

tellin` strangers who were sleepin`

how he hated goin` home

Just a simple song of freedom,

he was never fightin` for,

no one`s listenin` when you need `em,

ain`t no fun to sing that song no more.

Got a song about a sister,

waitin` somewhere by the phone,

for some man who never missed her,

ever since he come and gone

And its harder for a woman,

with a baby on the way,

that`s the price of bein` human,

when you`re poor enough to pay,

So she listens to the freedom,

in the silence at her door

no one`s missin` till you need `em

ain`t no fun to sing that song no more

Got a song about a Savior,

lookin` lonesome and afraid,

at a city full of strangers,

and a cross He never made

And He`s sadder than He`s wiser,

and a longer way from home,

and He wonders why His Father,

left Him bleeding and alone.

Just a broken song of freedom,

and the closing of a door,

no one`s missin` till you need `em

ain`t no fun to sing that song no more.
