about

Co-written with Dan Rivers

lyrics

Same old movie in my head every summer me and her
Talkin’ names like James if it’s a boy or Lisa for a girl
Holdin’ onto the memory of a barefoot porch on a Saturday
And the face in a faded photograph seven thousand miles away

Dog tags and a wedding ring, how’d it come to this
Hard to do the right thing when you don’t know what that is
Heart is halfway ‘round the world but my boots are on the ground
Countin’ down the days here ain’t too much longer now

Tunin’ out the choppers and squintin’ through the dust
Thinkin’ of the one I love and the place I wish I was
Did my best couldn’t fix the rest but I pray she understands
Either way I’m learnin’ what it means to be a man

Dog tags and a wedding ring, how’d it come to this
Hard to do the right thing when you don’t know what that is
Heart is halfway ‘round the world but my boots are on the ground
Countin’ down the days here ain’t too much longer now

Open up that envelope and a tear rolls down my face
Loves me and she’s proud as hell P.S. little Lisa’s on the way
