Like Brothers Before Him

Like Brothers Before Him

 

Like brothers before him he answered the call/The nations they rise and the empires they fall/Lucky for you if you don’t have to go/Lucky for him if the dying’s not slow

 

They fought in the blue and they fought in the gray/The banner was stainless/Well that’s what they say/It’s a tattered old rag on a cold battlefield/ Wrap it around him and those that he killed

 

We’re gonna bring him home again

 

The red fields France it’s there that he fell/The called Iwo Jima the black sands of hell/It’s a cold dirty ditch in Afghanistan/Fighting for something we don’t under stand

 

We’re gonna bring him home again

 

The cause it is righteous the path it is true/Al hamdulillah God’s mercy on you/The cause it is righteous the path it is true/Alhamdulillah God’s mercy on you

 

Alhamdulilhah Alhamdulillah

 

We’re gonna bring him home again
