"Didn't I" as written by and R. Anthony Smith....
Didn't I make you proud
Go and lay my life down
When you called my name
I thought I stood for something
Was doing the right thing when I went away
Now being back should be so simple
But I keep getting mixed signals from everyone
Why do folks sit and judge me
Who I ain't seen what I seen or did what I've done

Didn't I burn
Didn't I bleed enough for you
I faced your fears
Felt pain so you won't have to
Didn't I do my best
And wasn't home here when I left

I've seen boys fall to pieces
Grown men cry out for Jesus
Til they're black and blue
I thought God was on our side
Weren't we suppose to be the good guys
That would never lose
Cause I don't see no ticker tape
Or five mile parade
Saying "Thank You son"
Just folks that sit and judge me
Who ain't seen what I've seen or did what I've done

Didn't I burn
Didn't I bleed enough for you
I faced your fears
Felt pain so you won't have to
Didn't I do my best
And wasn't home here when I left.

    General CommentThis is a great song for veterans that I think they really relate to. I love it. It shows how people can still have disrespect for a veteran after all the stuff they went through for you. Thanks.

    General Commentbeing enlisted in the C. A. F. this song does hit me in the heart. It is true. I feel that way when i go on leave to visit my folks and friends. They don't get why I enlisted, why i risk my life everyday in a country halfway around the world. Be they don't get it cause they haven't experienced it.
