When the call went out, I answered,
With my bags and my bus transfer.
Got a haircut and a makeup,
An oh-five-hundred wake-up,
And a dirty job to take up.

Never been so far from home.
My back rests on a stone.
My feet are cold and wet here.
I'm gonna bleed and sweat here.
I won't ever forget here.

REFRAIN:
Remember me. Don't surrender me.
Remember me. Don't surrender me.

The crowers on TV
Pretend that they know me.
The conscience gets bigger,
The words, more full of vigor,
The farther from the trigger.

I love and always will,
Though there may be a time to kill.
Our shoes are not the same,
So before you lay the blame,
Shake my hand, tell me your name.

(REFRAIN)

Long after the elections,
The wins and the rejections,
When the coals don't seem to smolder,
Let not our cares grow colder.
I'm a person and a soldier.

And when the call went out, I answered,
With my bags and my bus transfer.
Don't know how this all will end.
Don't know if we'll meet again.
Don't give up on me, my friend.

(REFRAIN)
