He joined the Army to keep us free
and fight for you and me.
Never had very much luck with girls,
he didn’t have much in this world.
But if you were ever down, or having a bad day,
he’d find a way to bring you up,
make you smile, he’d find a way.

Chorus
He was a soldier, he was a actor,
he was an fighter, he was my friend.
He was my shoulder, when I needed comfort,
and in the end he got his fame,
and I’ll see him again.

He used to come and talk to me,
and tell me all his dreams.
How he’d love to be famous and be on stage,
make people smile that’s what he’d say.
One day in Iraq, there was a vicious attack.
When the dust finally settled down,
he laid there lifeless on the ground.
Lord how I cried, how it broke my heart,
that a man so young and full of life,
was taken from me in the blink of an eye.

Chorus

He was a soldier, he was an actor,
he was a fighter, he was my friend.
He was my shoulder, when I needed comfort,
and in the end he got his fame,
and I’ll see him again.

She rides in the car. The drive’s not very far.
The people stood up, as they rolled through,
she watched over him like mother’s do.
As she looked out the window,
she couldn’t believe, all the people that lined the streets,
there were flags and signs and teary eyes,
and old men saluted as they rolled by.
Everyone gathers ’round, they lay him in the ground
As shots rang out and TAPS was played,
a flag was folded to commemorate.

Chorus
Now he is God’s soldier, he is God’s actor.
He is God’s fighter and he is God’s friend.
He is God’s shoulder, when he needs some comfort
and in heaven he’ll have his fame and I’ll see him again.

Yeah, Keep ‘Em Smilin’ til I get there and I’ll see you my friend!
