Jessie James – Military Man lyrics

School is out, Where to now?
I'm packin' up, headin' South
One last box, one last look around.

I remember being so excited,
Brand new friends that were so inviting.
That's the way it's been since I was young.

And I loved nothing more,
Than seeing my daddy in his uniform.

CHORUS:
I'm the daughter of a military man
It's a way of life
And I understand
And I'm so proud to say, it made me who I am today.
I hope down the road I find a real good man
Who's done half the things that my daddy has
And it's a beautiful thing, my sweet American dream, yeah...

We laid on our backs, looking up at the sky,
Watching f-15's scream on by
While me and my brother and sister would play outside

Shopping at the Commissary, Dancing at the Military Ball.
Yeah, we did it all...

At 5 o clock when the anthem plays...
You could hear a pin drop on the whole base...

CHORUS
I'm the daughter of a military man
It's a way of life
And I understand
And I'm so proud to say, it made me who I am today.
I hope down the road I find a real good man
Who's done half the things that my daddy has
And it's a beautiful thing, my sweet American dream, yeah...

Oooh yeah yeah

Home is where you hang your hat
Yeah, that's what Mama says,
And I'm fine with that

CHORUS
I'm the daughter of a military man
It's a way of life
And I understand
And I'm so proud to say, it made me who I am today.
I hope some day I find a real good man
Who's done half the things that my daddy has
And it's a beautiful thing, OOOHHH
And it's a beautiful thing...

My sweet American dream, yeah...
