"Letters Home (Aftermath)" as written by and Benjamin P Cooper....
So, I'm writing' you this letter between rests
'Cause yesterday a bullet found my chest
And I don't got the energy to dress myself
And I can't walk without help

And I

I can't remember why I joined this war
And I can't tell you what we're fighting' for
I guess I wasn't smart enough to see the game
And that no one's keeping' score

And now, you would not believe the things I miss
It's all the little things that fill that list
Like playing' with the dogs
And helping' father chop the wood behind the fence

Now I

I'm not sure if I'll see another day
The doctor said it could go either way
But I just wanted you to know
No matter if I sink of fall or blink out in this hospital

That I'm alright, yeah
I made peace with it all
Mistakes and all

    General CommentThe lyrics are for the wrong song. These are the Lyrics for "Letters Home", which is on the album, "The Family Tree: The Branches". "Letters Home (Aftermath)" is this:

    Well the men arrived as the sun began to set,
    And they pulled a wooden crate 'bout six feet long.
    I could read the news in their downcast eyes that my boy had passed away,
    So I stepped inside 'cause there was nothing left to say.
