if you're readin' this

this is a Beautiful song by Tim McGraw   if you don't listen to country music at least listen long enough to hear this song  here are the lyrics...
If you’re readin’ this 
My momma’s sittin’ there 
Looks like I only got a one way ticket over here. 
I sure wish I could give you one more kiss 
War was just a game we played when we were kids 
Well I’m layin’ down my gun 
I’m hanging up my boots 
I’m up here with God and we’re both watchin’ over you 

So lay me down 
In that open field out on the edge of town 
And know my soul 
Is where my momma always prayed that it would go. 
If you’re readin’ this I’m already home. 

If you’re readin’ this 
Half way around the world 
I won’t be there to see the birth of our little girl 
I hope she looks like you 
I hope she fights like me 
And stands up for the innocent and the weak 
I’m layin’ down my gun, 
I’m hanging up my boots 
Tell dad I don’t regret that I followed in his shoes 

So lay me down 
In that open field out on the edge of town 
And know my soul 
is where my momma always prayed that it would go 
If you’re readin’ this, I’m already hoooommmmmeeee 

If you’re readin’ this, 
There’s gonna come a day 
You move on and find someone else and that’s okay 
Just remember this 
I’m in a better place 
Soldiers live in peace and angels sing amazing grace 

So lay me down 
In that open field out on the edge of town 
And know my soul is where my momma always prayed that it would go 
If you’re readin’ this 
If you’re readin’ this 
I’m already home
