Note to An Unkown Soldier Five for Fighting Lyrics

I don't know you, I never met you
For laughs I'll call you Sam
You were the son of Mrs. Someone
I hope she understands

Sam you were all that you had
Are you happy or sad?
I never knew you
But I'm told you're the best that we had

Were you so tall? Did you play basketball?
Was there a sweetheart at home?
Did you write her letters did it make you better
Face the great unknown?

Sam did you feel alone?
You were so far from home
I never knew you
But I know you're the best man I know

Could you tell it was time
See it coming in the back of your mind?
When it was over, was it over?
Sam I'm glad you're on my side

I don't know you, I never met you
Can I call you Sam?
Did you have a son, a daughter with a little one?
I might go and thank

Sam you're the best that we had
You make me happy and sad
If you were here I'd buy the beers
I'd shake your hand and say good man

And though the sun would shine about the same
It's a better world because you came
Sincerely yours, my kids will know your name
