    It's called "If You're Reading This"

    If you’re reading this

    My momma is sitting there

    Looks like I only got a one way ticket over here

    I sure wish I could give you one more kiss

    War was just a game we played when we were kids

    Well I’m laying down my gun

    I’m hanging up my boots

    I’m up here with God

    And we’re both watching over you

    So lay me down

    In that open field out on the edge of town

    And know my soul

    Is where my momma always prayed where it would go.

    If you’re reading this I’m already home.

    If you’re reading this

    Half way around the world

    I won’t be there to see the birth of our little girl

    I hope she looks like you

    I hope she fights like me

    Stand up for the innocent and the weak

    I’m laying down my gun

    Hanging up my boots

    Tell dad I don’t regret that id follow in his shoes

    So lay me down

    In that open field out on the edge of town

    And know my soul is where my momma always prayed where it would go

    If you’re reading this, I’m already home

    If you’re reading this, there is going to come a day

    You move on and find someone else and that’s okay

    Just remember this

    I’m in a better place

    Soldiers live in peace and angels sing amazing grace

    So lay me down

    In that open field out on the edge of town

    And know my soul is where my momma prayed where that it would go

    If you’re reading this

    If you’re reading this

    I’m already home

    Not sure if this is the one you are thinking of:

    Nothin' To Die For

    Stopped to have a few at five now you're crossing that center line for the third time

    Second time like this this week had a friend ask you for your keys

    You said 'no I'm fine'

    You sure do act like you don't got a thing to lose

    But every car you pass might be the one's you take with you

    [Chorus]

    You'd give your last breath to your wife

    Take a bullet for your kids

    Lay your life down for your country for your Jesus for your friends

    There's a whole lot of things you say you're living for

    You've got to fight it somehow, stop and turn around

    'Cause this ain't nothin' to die for

    So what's the harm in a little fun

    'Cause you're off to work before the sun everyday

    And the inbox outbox locks you in and the money you make ain't worth the time you spend to make your pay

    The doctor says 'man your numbers they don't lie'

    The graveyard's full of folks that didn't have time to die

    [Chorus]

    Straight through that guardrail up into that white light

    You hear a sweet voice saying just this side of the other side

    Just this side of the other side

    [Chorus]

    Ain't nothin' to die for

    Nothin' to die for

    Ain't nothin' to die for
