Intro: C F F G

If you�re [C]reading this...and my [G]mama�s sitting there-
Looks [Am]like I only got a one-way [F]ticket over here.

[C]Sure wish I�could give you [G]one more kiss-
[Am]War was just a game we played when [F]we were kids.

Well, I�m [F2]laying down my gun.[C2]...I�m hanging up my boots-
[F]I�m up here with God and we�re both [G]watching over you.

So [F]lay [G]me [Am]down...[F]in that open field out on the [G]edge of town-
And [F]know [G]my [Am]soul...is [F]where my mama always prayed they�d [G]ever go�
If you�re [F]reading this �
[G]I�m already home.[C]

[F]     [G]                              
If you�re [C]reading this...half way [G]round the world-
I [Am]won�t be there to see the birth of our[F] little girl.


I hope she [C]looks like you...I hope she [G]fights like me-
And [Am]stands up for the innocent [F]and the weak.


I�m [F2]laying down my gun.[C2]...I�m hanging up my boots-
Tell [F]dad I don�t regret that I [G]followed in his shoes.


So [F]lay [G]me [Am]down...[F]in that open field out on the [G]edge of town-
And [F]know [G]my [Am]soul...is [F]where my mama always prayed they�d [G]ever go...
If you�re [F]reading this �
[G]I�m already home.[Am]

[G]    [C]           [G]                    

If you�re [C]reading this...there�s gonn[G]a come a day-
When [Am]you�ll move on and find someone else and [F]that�s okay.


Just re[C]member this...I�m in a [G]better place-
Where [Am]soldiers live in peace and angels [F]sing amazing [G]grace.


So [F]lay [G]me [Am]down...[F]in that open field out on the [G]edge of town-
And [F]know [G]my [Am]soul...is [F]where my mama always prayed they�d [G]ever go�
If you�re [F]reading this�
If you�re [G]reading this -
I�m already home. [C]   [F]    [G]   [C]
