If You're Reading This
by Tim McGraw



If your reading this, my momma sittin there
Looks like I only got a one way ticket over here
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 hangin up my boots
I`m up here with God and were both watchin over you

[Chorus]
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
And if your reading this, I`m already home

If your 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 hangin up my boots.
Tell dad I don`t regret that i followed in his shoes

[Chorus]
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
And if your reading this, I`m already home

If your reading this, theres gonna come a day
When you`ll move on and find someone else
And thats okay, just remember this
I`m in a better place
Where soldiers live in peace
And angels sing Amazing Grace

[Chorus]
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
And if your reading this, I`m already home.
