Will you take me up to Rose Hill
When you lay my body low
Wrap me in a flag, throw some flowers on the ground
Say a few words then let me go
There's no need to defend my honor
Or justify the life I gave
There's no need for the pictures of my happy childhood there
Please don't pour salt upon my grave

I knew long ago that I would be the one
To brandish my sword should they beat those battle drums
I stood my ground, I stood for something worth falling for

Ask my father to forgive me
I know he didn't understand
He worked too hard for way too many years
To lose his only boy in a foreign sand
Theres No doubt, he is angry
No doubt where he'll place the blame
But don't let him fall apart, Mama, don't let him go back to those pills
Only time will ease the pain

I died a patriot, a soldier just like him
Fought like he taught me to, until the very end
I stood my ground, I stood for something worth falling for

(I hope this wars worth dyin for, I hope this wars worth dyin for, I hope this wars worth dyin for)

Take my stripes and take my medals
Take my cross and these dog tags, too
Put 'em in a package and stain it with your tears
Send it up to Pennsylvania Avenue
My last regards to the man in charge
Let him know I served my country well
Yeah, he was right behind me all the way to Kandahar
The night my broken body fell

Don't let a day go by without a peaceful prayer
For my brothers and my sisters still fighting over there
They stand their ground,
They stand for something worth falling for yeah
They stand their ground,
They stand for something worth falling for
worth dying for
I hope this war is dying for
