Lyrics for Back From Iraq by The Uncle Bill Roach Band

Back From Iraq - Lyrics

Download Lyrics
Standing in line at LAX, I was on my way home
There was a soldier there in front of me had his desert camos on
I said ÂHey! You comin' or you goin'? He said ÂI'm goin' to Iraq
I've got a five day old son back in Lubbock and I just can't wait to get back
from Iraq.Â

He said his name was Private Johnny Lee and he didn't really like to fight
But that all changed on 9-11 he was doin' what was right
Well I thanked him for his service and then I helped him with his pack
I gave him my card and said ÂCall me son, just as soon as you get back
from Iraq.Â
Then I looked him in the eye and I said

(Chorus)
ÂYou are the reason for the freedom we have today
And I'll mention your name to the big man tonight when I get down on my knees to pray
Hell, you don't even know me but you lay your life on the line
You are the reason. Your a hero of mineÂ.
(Bridge)
I thought about that soldier boy almost every single night
And I hoped him and his buddies they was doin' alright
But all is fair in love and war and only God knows
The destiny of his children and that's just the way it goes

It's been two years last November and I never got that call
I found his wife out in Lubbock, She was workin' at the mall
She said Johnny never made it. It was a roadside attack
He only had six days to go before he was comin' back
from Iraq
So I told her about the night at the airport when I looked at her husband and I said

(Chorus)
ÂYou are the reason for the freedom we have today
And I'll mention your name to the big man tonight when I get down on my knees to pray
Hell you don't even know me but you lay your life on the line
You are the reason. Your a hero of mine
You're a hero of mineÂ.
