Kimbell & Reynolds – Brother Joe lyrics
I just sat down to write this letter
Lookin' out on the place you love,
Summer rains will be comin' soon
Those clouds are buildin' in the sky above,
Just a mile off the highway
A cloud of dust from dad's truck, I bet,
Comin' home from his plowin'
Progress hasn't reached our dirt road, yet
I've been thinkin' about the day you left
Things ain't been the same,
Mom gets that "far-off" look in her eye
When someone mentions your name

Your dog, "Old Bess", had her pups last week
More than expected, it's true,
Mom's hip replacement was a big success
She says she feels brand new,
Dad still gets buried in his farm work
Sometimes, he's clear out of view,
But there are times, he just gets "quiet"
I know he's missing you,
He was so proud when you took that oath
"Defend the RED, WHITE & BLUE",
And we'll stand strong, 'til you come back home
We'll all be waiting for you


Parson John dropped by, last week
We had a prayer for you,
I saw your girlfriend at the drugstore...
She says her love is still "true",
We're all proud that you're a soldier
Respect continues to grow,
We at home, know your sacrifice
I just thought - you should know,
Brother Joe

    A soldier gets news from home. When a civilian leaves home to become a soldier, the everyday realities of their former life
    tend to evaporate. However, even though trained to be warriors, they still need a connection to their families.
    The important thing is to stay in touch and stay united. This song is about one of those families.
