My Soldier's Coming Home
Tolbert Music, copyright 2007

VERSE 1
Waiting at the airport - folks lined against the wall
A mother cradles daughter - as she holds her little doll
A lot of people talking - there's excitement through the tears
Since the soldiers left us - the months have seemed like years

(The) anticipation peaks - as the plane comes into sight,
Every heart begins to race - when the soldiers leave their flight.
'Each strains to catch a glimpse - of the loved ones they so miss
Could not imagine how it'd feel -- could not imagine joy like this.

CHORUS (1)
Fathers, sons and brothers - our soldiers coming home
Honoring the fallen -- the flags are being flown
Giving their all for freedom -- in lands so far away
I thank God my soldier's coming home

VERSE 2
The mother and her daughter -- (they're) standing all alone
Waiting for a coffin - her husband's finally home
(Through all) the great excitement -- most folks just did not see
(That this) soldier would have to wait for heaven -- to see his family

CHORUS (2)
Mothers, daughters, sisters - our soldiers coming home
Honoring the fallen -- the flags are being flown
Giving their all for freedom -- in lands so far away
I thank God my soldier's coming home

BRIDGE
'Said our goodbyes
Now, lift up your eyes
Coming down the hall
Are the ones who stand so tall (they are)

CHORUS (3)
All who served our country - our soldiers coming home
Honoring the fallen --the flags are being flown
Giving their all for freedom -- in lands so far away

Repeat 3 Times
I thank God my soldier's coming home
