Last Letter Home
by Dropkick Murphys

Hello there my dearest love
Today I write to you about our sons
The boys start school today
They're the spitting image of you in every way

Hey son, it's Dad
I hope this letter finds you well out of harm's way
We saw the news today, it frightened your mom
Now all she does is pray

If I lead, will you follow?
Will you follow if I lead?

Hey Melissa, it's me, don't be afraid
I'm in good hands, I'm gonna be home soon
It's time to watch the children grow up
I wanna be more than a voice on the phone

Thanks Ma, I got your package today
I love "The Fields Of Athenry"
I swear I want 'em to play that song on the pipes
At my funeral when I die

Chorus

I stand alone in the distance
As the foreground slowly moves

Chorus

"We regret to inform you that on January 28th, Sgt. Andrew Farrar died while serving his country in the Al-Anbar province of Iraq. Words cannot convey our sadness."

Chorus

When there's nothing on the horizon
You've got nothing left to prove

If I lead, will you follow?
