Nineteen The number on his back wore the captain of The high school football team Took us all the way to state Got a scholarship to play down in Tennessee He could catch he could throw he could run he Could go like you've never seen Nineteen But on the day those twin towers came down His whole world turned around He told them all I can't play ball there's a war on now He marched right in with a few good Men and joined the marines At nineteen [Chorus] He's a boy next door He might of carried your bags at the grocery store Now he's somebody's son in a hole With a gun in a foreign land Trying to hold on to his American dream At nineteen There's a sniper out there in the dark Somewhere and a soldier is down Need someone who can duck and run and get him out somehow What one good man will raise his hand And take one for the team How bout you nineteen? [Chorus] Nineteen Nineteen Brought him home today with a big Parade down on main street Gotta Purple Heart and a Silver Star solder gave a speech Said he could catch he could throw he could Run he's the one that rescued me Could have played for Tennessee He was nineteen He was only nineteen
