One Hell of an Amen
by Brantley Gilbert



Preacher said he died too young
over there totin' that gun
for Uncle Sam and our freedom
Mom and Daddy dressed in black
they folded up that flag
started prayin'
yeah he went out 21 guns blazin'

An' that's One Hell of an Amen
that's the only way to go
fightin' the good fight
til the Good Lord calls you home
and so be well my friend
til' I see you again
this is our last goodbye
but it's a Hell of an Amen

Doctor said he ain't got long
he just smiled said bring it on
if you think I'm scared
you got it all wrong
a little cancer can't break me
my heart's right and I believe
we all hit our knees
started prayin'
naw he never gave up
said the Good Lord's waitin'

An' that's One Hell of an Amen
that's the only way to go
fightin' the good fight
til the Good Lord calls you home
so be well my friend
til' I see you again
yeah this is our last goodbye
but it's a Hell of an Amen

So be well my friend
til' I see you again
this is our last goodbye
But it's a Hell of an Amen
