time fly away
Ive been thinking about my yesterday
please listen darlin to my empty prayers
Sleep inside my dreams tonight
I need to know tonight are you and my child
is he a soldier or is he a dreamer?
Is he mamas little man?
he help you when he can?
Or honey does he ever ask about me?
like a soldier boy
I been out fighting wars
That the world never knows about
but I never win them loud
Theres no crowds around me
when I get to thinkin
About the old days
When love was here to stay
wonder if wed ever tried
Oh, what Id give to hold him.
