CHARLIE by Gaither Drake

My daddy left home fore I met him
My mama knew that I was sad
She brought home a puppy named Charlie
Twas the best dog that I ever had
We hung out each morning and evening
Till kindergarten took me away
And Charlie would stand by the door looking lonely
Id look down at him and Id say
Charlie Ill be home soon
And then we can be together
Youll give me a lick, and well head down the crick
Me and you well be buddies forever
So dont let your heart fill with gloom
Im coming home soon

I never was much of a scholar
Dropped out when I was seventeen
One day a recruiter came a-knockin
And soon I became a Marine
I figured Id put in my time
Sort out what I wanted to do
But Afghanistan wasnt part of the plan
Now Im up in a tower with a gun in my hand
Then I got me a letter from Mama
She said that you died by the door
Waiting for the day when Id come home to play
Like Id done so often before
Saying Charlie Ill be home soon
And I know that youre gonna be waiting
Ill toss you a stick, and well head down the crick
Theres a couple of hooks that need baiting
In the heat of a long afternoon
Im coming home soon

The end of my tour was nearing
In a couple of days Id be free
Came the moment Id always been fearing
Heard the blast of an IED
I think Ill head home for the summer
Dig out my creel and my pole
Me an my dog will just sit on a log
By the edge of the old fishing hole
Im thinking bout my mama and Charlie
Wish it would last forever
In my last dying breath as I face my own death
I said Charlie well soon be together

Charlie Ill be home soon
Well go on a hike through the canyon
Ill take you away for a long summer day
And youll always be my companion
By the light of a gold harvest moon
Im coming home soon
