WELCOME HOME

Written by: Lary Houston

I've been a lot of places I didn't want to go
  I've been forced to learn some things I did not want to know.

I've watched a lot of friends die while I stood helplessly
  Hearing the steel hornet sing knowing one was seeking me.

I thought I was doing my duty like so many had before
  Risking all for God and country upon some distant shore.

Baby killer some have called me and since then I've heard worse
  Instead of coming back heroes we're still living under a curse.

But some day when I reach heaven where I won't have to stand alone
  I know I'll hear my Savior say,"Stand easy troop and welcome home."
