We Were Soldiers – Didn't I lyrics

Didn't I make you proud, go and lay my life down
When you called my name
I thought I stood for something
Was doing the right thing when I went away

Now being back should be so simple
But I keep getting these mixed signals from everyone
Why do folks sit and judge me
Who ain't seen what I've seen or did what I've done

Didn't I burn, didn't I bleed enough for you
I faced your fears, felt pain so you won't have to
Yeah didn't I do my best
And wasn't home here when I left

I've seen boys fall to pieces, grown men cry out for Jesus
'Til there black and blue
I thought God was on your side, weren't we suppose to be the good guys
That would never lose

'Cause I don't see no ticker tape or five mile parades
Sayin', 'Thank you son'
Just folks that sit and judge me
Who ain't seen what I've seen or did what I've done

Didn't I burn, didn't I bleed enough for you
I faced your fears felt the pain so you won't have to
Yeah didn't I do my best
And wasn't home here when I left
