Josh Gracin The Other Little Soldier Lyrics

Last updated: 11/27/2008 10:00:00 AM

He used to play in daddy's uniform
With the stripes across the sleeve
And he knew when he was all grown up
What he was gonna be
He used to like to ambush every careless cat or dog
That had the nerve to cross the battle lines that he had drawn

And even though he didn't know
What his dad was fighting for
He was proud to be the other little soldier
In this war

The phone rang in the middle of the night
When they called his dad to go
Kissed him and his mom goodbye
And said God I love you both
Now I know that it's a lot to ask of such a little man
But hold the fort and
I'll be home as quickly as I can

And even though he didn't know
What his dad was fighting for
He was proud to be the other little soldier
In this war

A wall cannot begin to hold
The names of all the kids
Who gave the great sacrifice
That any child could give

It was the first time he had ever seen
A flag from up that close
And he watched them as
They folded it so careful and so slow
As they gave it to his mother
He knew what he should do
He raised his little hand and
Gave his Dad one last salute

And even though he didn't know
What his dad was fighting for
He was proud to be the other little soldier
He was proud to be the other little soldier
In this war

This song is amazing! It reminds me of my husband in a way because his father was in the military and I have pictures of him when he was little in his dads uniform, and he joined when he was 19 and I have a picture of him when he was little in his dads uniform next to a picture of him now in his own uniform. We are pregnant right now and I hope we have a son who grows up to want to follow in his fathers foot steps one day and defend our freedom! HOOAH!

It also brigs back memories of my dad which was killed 3 weeks ago over seas fighting for our freedom.I can remember when iwas young i'd always dress up in his uniform even tho i'm a girl this in school i'm enrolled in jrotc its an amazeing program



the song | Reviewer: Amber Fairchild | 1/4/2007

the song is so sad it makes me cry because he was a little boy and his father was over in the war and his father left in the middle of the night when his father was called to go to war. The little boy never saw a flag up that close before. The little boy was very proud to be the next little soldier in the world and I think that's good because then he can follow his fathers footsteps and be just like his father and make his mother proud of him
