Ive had fame and fortune, women come knock on my door
Ive live to the limit and maybe a little bit more
There are so many stories of how I got out of control
Some say its a woman, some say its my trouble soul

Im like a crazy old solider fightin a war on my own
Just me and the whiskey and the bottles are ten thousand strong
Youd think Id give up as many times as Ive been hit
But like a crazy old soldier, I just dont know when to quit

Barrooms and bedrooms are just faces and places and names
Once for the pleasure and Lord knows once for the pain
Ive tried to forget her and all of the things that weve done
But as long as there are memories, Ill never hang up my gun

Im like a crazy old solider fightin a war on my own
Just me and the whiskey and the bottles are ten thousand strong
Youd think Id give up as many times as Ive been hit
But like a crazy old soldier, I just dont know when to quit
Like a crazy old solider, I just dont know when to quit

SEALS, TROY HAROLD/KENNERLEY, PAUL HARDY
