  • Sittin' restless under the moonlight
    I know I'm getting ready to kill
    They say we're going in with the day light
    I don't want to but I will

    Cause I won't know the man that kills me
    And I don't know these men I kill
    I thank God for my salvation
    Wash away the blood I spill

    I try not to think about my family
    Cause it's a little too much to take
    Out here I got me and I got my buddy
    We can't afford even one mistake

    I started writing on dirty card boards,
    It's the only paper I could find
    Tell everyone I got their letters,
    Tell everyone I'm doing fine

    Late at night when I can dream I,
    I think about life back in the world

    I miss you and dad, I miss sister Sarah
    I miss my wife and my baby girl

    Pray for me, pray for my soul Ma
    Pray for me and all my sins

    They say I got a job to do now
    I'll be back when it finally ends

    Do you think I should be fighting?
    Ma, are you proud are you ashamed?

    Really I'm trying to do the right thing
    I hope my Government can say the same thing

    Cause I won't know the man that kills me
    And I don't know these men I kill
    We all wind upon the same side
    Cause ain't none of us doin' God's Will
