I never thought that this is where I'd settle down I thought I'd die an old man back in my hometown They gave me this plot of land Me and some other men, for a job well-done There's a big white house Sits on a hill just up the road The man inside He cried the day they brought me home They folded up a flag and told my mom and dad We're proud of your son And I'm proud to be On this peaceful piece of property I'm on sacred ground And I'm in the best of company I'm thankful for those thankful For the things I've done I can rest in peace I'm one of the chosen ones I made it to Arlington I remember daddy brought me here when I was eight We searched all day To find out where my grand-dad lay When we finally found that cross He said, "Son this is what it costs To keep us free" Now here I am, a thousand stones away from him He recognized me on the first day I came in And it gave me a chill when he clicked his heels And saluted me And I'm proud to be On this peaceful piece of property I'm on sacred ground And I'm in the best of company I'm thankful for those thankful For the things I've done I can rest in peace I'm one of the chosen ones I made it to Arlington And every time I hear twenty-one guns I know they brought another hero home to us We're thankful for those thankful For the things we've done We can rest in peace 'Cause we are the chosen ones We made it to Arlington Yeah, dust to dust Don't cry for us We made it to Arlington
