If You're Reading This [Live]
by Tim McGraw



If you're reading this, my momma's sitting there
looks like I got a one way ticket over here
I sure wish I could give you one more kiss
And 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 that 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
And stands up for the innocent and the weak

I'm laying down my gun, I'm hanging up my boots
Tell dad i don't regret that i followed 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 that it would go
If you're reading this I'm already home

If you're reading this there's gonna come a day
When you move on and find someone else and that's okay
Just remember this I'm in a better place
Where soldiers live in peace and angles 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 always prayed that it would go
If your're reading this, If you're reading this I'm already home
