"If You're Reading This"

by Tim McGraw


If you're reading this My Mommas sitting there Looks like I only got a one way ticket over here Sure wish I Could give you one more kiss And war was just a game we played when we were kids I'm laying down my gun I'm hanging up my boots I'm up here with God and we're both watching over you So lay me down In that open field out on the edge of town And know my soul Is where my Momma always prayed That it would go And if you're reading this I'm already home If you're reading this Half way around the world I won't be there To see the birth of our little girl I hope she looks like you I hope she fights like me Stands up for the innocent and the weak I'm laying down my gun I'm hanging up my boots Tell dad I don't regret that I followed in his shoes So lay me down In that open field out on the edge of town And know my soul Is where my Momma always prayed That it would go And if you're reading this I'm already home If you're reading this There's going to come a day When you'll move on And find some one else And that's OK Just remember this I'm in a better place Where soldiers live in peace And angels sing amazing grace So lay me down In that open field out on the edge of town And know my soul Is where my Momma always prayed That it would go If you're reading this If you're reading this I'm already home




John 15:13 (English Standard Version) 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
