We plead and plead we beg and plead
Don’t let us suffer keep us free
We wish no harm yet we wish it all
This is what leads to one more soldier gone
How is it so that we obtain this life
Yet see no need to hold it tight
We walk around all day long
This is what leads to one more soldier gone
All through the night we humbly pray
To bring our soldiers home one day
To see their face in the morning yawn
This is what leads to one more soldier gone
A soldier holds their family dear
Fighting to keep them out of fear
How is it so they keep their cool
This is what leads to one more soldier gone
We are home of the free
And home of the brave
Yet how many brave come home to the free
This is the reason why
There is one more soldier gone
