Name on a Wall

It had only been 8 months
Since his high school dance
But he could throw that football
Loved to sing Johnny Cash

Left Christmas day for Iraq
But Sgt. Wilson ain't coming back

He’s just a name on a wall
Letters etched in stone
Another war to read about
Another smile is gone
There's a debt we owe
To those who gave it all
He was somebody's baby
Now just a name on a wall

They picked out their wedding bands
On the Fourth of July
Planned out their family
How she'd be his wife

Three days later she was gone
Now Private Morgan aint coming home


Thomas Ray, James E. Craig
And a thousand other names
They did their duty, paid the price
So remember what they gave

Solo – 4 bars
