Track Name: Soldier Girl
Soldier Girl copyright 2012 Barry Moffitt
Her son was three years old and her daughter almost five
When she got the call that would forever change their lives
For years now she's been training to go overseas and fight
But nothing could prepare her for the way she'd feel inside

She's got a job to do and she's gonna do it well
But it's not just the fighting that puts this Soldier girl through hell
She's a woman she's a Soldier she's a mother and a wife
And to protect your freedom she's prepared to give her life

The phone calls and the letters remind her there's another world
But they can't replace the hugs from her little boy and girl
She can't unsee the battles, the thoughts of war can't be undone
She knows the empty bunk beside her means a stone at Arlington

She's got a job to do and she's gonna do it well
But it's not just the fighting that puts this Soldier girl through hell
She's a woman she's a Soldier she's a mother and a wife
And to protect your freedom she's prepared to give her life

Tears flowed as she squeezed the man, who five hundred and forty days
Had to be both mom and dad while she was away
Two kids clung on to their momma's neck and they'll all shared a bed that night
She's home but she won't forget her family's sacrifice

Her family understands, the war lives on inside her mind
She's still on active duty when she falls asleep at night
It's important for this Soldier Girl to hear thanks for all she's done
And sometimes she just needs to be reminded that she's loved

She's got a job to do and she's gonna do it well
But it's not just the fighting that puts this Soldier girl through hell
She's a woman she's a Soldier she's a mother and a wife
And to protect your freedom she's prepared to give her life
She's a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine
And to protect our freedom she's prepared to give her life
I'm proud to stand and say, This Soldier Girl's my wife.
