I remember when I was much younger than now
I used to sit and listen to the news
I was the only child
And another day and another night
Wishin' daddy would come home
Me and mom couldn't sleep at night

He had just went off to fight
For the things we thought were right
So determined to survive
I believe he's still alive

I sing the ballad for the fallen soldiers
This is a ballad for the fallen soldiers

I wrote to my Congressman
He sends his regrets
That he's missing in action
But don't give up yet

So many people
Waitin' like me
Who's got the answer
What could it be

His country wanted him to fight
For the things they thought were right
And he tried to give his all
In DC his name is on the wall

I sing the ballad for the fallen soldiers
This is a ballad for the fallen soldiers
I sing the ballad for the fallen soldiers
This is the ballad for the fallen soldiers

He had just went off to fight
For the things we thought were right
So determined to survive
I believe he's still alive

I sing the ballad for the fallen soldiers
This is a ballad for the fallen soldiers

I sing the ballad for the fallen soldiers
This is a ballad for the fallen soldiers
