Her new baby boy lay on her chest
Her heart full of joy silently she wept
First day of school for her little boy child
Her holding his hand him not cracking a smile
One day he asks, where's my father? Is my daddy dead?
Boy stop asking questions its time to go to bed
she tried hard to fight back the silent tears
but it still rose to the surface, her hidden fears
Now he tells her don't you understand
I got to get mine I got to be a man
Her grown baby boy lay cold on her chest
A heart full of pain and anger, loudly she wept
I loved my boy and no he didn't make the news
All these dead boys we all lookin for an excuse
One day his little boy will turn and ask you
Where is my father? Is my daddy dead too?
