Lyrics 

"TO ALL THE SOLDIERS"

Copyright 2003 - Taurus M. James. All Rights Reserved.

To all the Soldiers overseas in a land that ain't home/
Staring Death in the face in the many war zones/
Realize, I recognize the courage you've shown/
And I'm praying that God will grant your safe return home/

Dear Soldier, I know you're on your job, I'll make this short/
I just wanted you to know that you got my support/
And the prayers of my wife and I are staying on you/
And the thoughts I'm having lately, are focused on you/
You're on the front lines of battle out to get the job done/
Keep your spirits up, keep your focus, til the battle's won/
I for one, support you in the things that you do/
Accept these words from my heart as my thanks to you/
You may have thought twice, but you still made the sacrifice/
Leaving family and friends to live the "Combat Life"/
I know it's hard, but I won't pretend to understand/
All the things passing through your mind in those lands/
As you march across the grounds I only see on TV/
As you control the airspace and dominate the sea/
I pray, for your protection and your efficiency/
And the ultimate safe return to your family/

To all the Soldiers overseas in a land that ain't home/
Staring Death in the face in the many war zones/
Realize, I recognize the courage you've shown/
And I'm praying that God will grant your safe return home/
