If I Don't Make It Back

Lyrics

We went out for beers and a couple laughs
Knowin' for well that every bad joke that Jimmy told might be his last
So we laughed like the world won that war
Said things to him we'd never said before

This is why we should never take our freedom for granted, and why we should all pray for our men and women in Uniform! God Bless them where ever they are fighting for freedom!
