Lyrics:
I saw you shinin' like a lighter in a foxhole and
Without delay I put you in my sights
For years I watched you dancin' in my cross-hairs but
I couldn't pull the trigger for my life but
Then one day I got the stones to take your hand, dear and
I won you with a flower and a smile though
All I had to offer was a fireplace and
A face you learned to love after awhile
One day I was called to serve my country and
I went because I had never been away
I returned home with a bandage on my forehead and
A memory that gets weaker everyday and
Now you never touch me like your used to and
My injuries don't even start to heal and
I was sure right then and there that I would lose you
How wretched your beauty makes me feel
I used to think our love was but a trifle
I was surprised it lasted through the month of may but
Now I'm too old to lift my rifle
You're still here to watch me waste away
My love, I've lost so many friends since we got married and
I know you could say the same to me
I believe I was the first to ever catch you
Perhaps I should be the first to set you free
I saw you shinin' like the sunlight through the window and
The truth it started slowly sinkin' in and
I knew when I walked out the door this mornin'
I would never see your pretty face again
So don't go searchin' for my body in the cattails
Just be happy that I found a place to rest
By the time you read this letter I'll be gone, dear
You know I love you but
This if for the best
You know I love your but
This if for the best
You may also enjoy...
