  • Oh she knows
    She takes his hand
    And prays the child will understand
    At the door they watch the men go by
    In the clothes that daddy wore

    Mother's pride
    Baby boy
    His fathers eyes
    He's a soldier waiting for war
    Time will come
    He'll hold a gun
    His father's son

    And as he grows
    He hears the band
    Takes the step from boy to man
    And at the shore she waves her son goodbye
    Like the man she did before

    Mother's pride
    Just a boy
    His country's eyes
    He's a soldier waving at the shore
    And in her heart the time has come
    To lose a son

    And all the husbands, all the sons, all the lovers gone
    They make no difference
    No difference in the end
    Still hear the woman say your father died a hero
    In the name of God and man

    Mother's pride
    Crazy boy
    His lifeless eyes
    He's a soldier now forevermore
    He'll hold a gun 'till kingdom come
