I Just Came Back From A War
Darryl Worley
Darryl Worley/George Varble


First thing I did
When that plane finally landed
Was kiss the ground
Next thing I did
Was to go find my friends
Down at the ol' hangout

We drank some beer
And talked a lot about old times
But when the booze finally hit Billy Joe Grimes
He said, 'I don't know what it is,
But you seem diff'rent to me'
I said,

I just came back
From a place where they hated me
And everything I stand for
A land where our brothers are dying for others
Who don't even care anymore
If I'm not exactly the same good ol' boy
That you ran around with before
I just came back from a war

The very next mornin'
I took a walk through the neighborhood
I thought, it's been so long
Since I've been in a place where everything is good

People laughin' and children were playin'
And as I watched them
I found myself prayin'
Lord, keep 'em safe here at home
In the land of the free

'Cause I just came back
From a place where they hated me
And everything I stand for
A land where our brothers are dying for others
Who don't even care anymore
If I'm not the same little freckle-face boy
That grew up in that house next door
I just came back from a war

I hope you cherish this sweet way of life
And I hope you know that it comes with a price

I just came back
From a place where they hated me
And everything I stand for
A land where our brothers are dying for others
Who don't even care anymore
Chances are I never will be the same
I really don't know anymore
I just came back from a war

I just came back from a war
You don't know me, you don't know me, you don't know me
I just came back from a war




I pledge allegiance
to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the republic
for which it stands,
one nation,
under God,
indivisible,
with liberty
and justice for all.
