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



If you're reading this
My mama's sitting there
Looks like I only 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

[Chorus]
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul is where my mama always prayed that it would go
If you're reading this, I'm already home

If you're reading this
Halfway 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
She stands up for the innocent and the weak
I'm laying down my gun
Hanging up my boots
Tell dad, I don't regret that I've 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 mama always prayed that 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 mama always prayed that it would go
If you're reading this, I'm already home
