Americas Best

from Live at the New South Showcase by Joe Cat



I am the watchman
Counting my steps
Bricks in this building
And, every last breath
I got, three in my rifle
And a anti-bullet vest
Dont you think I did some wrong
Cause Im one of Americas best

Did some tours of duty
In sandy foreign lands
Lost one of my jungle-boots
Hunting the Taliban
When I, sleep at night, It's
Phantom pains & memories of my leg
Why do I have to feel so wrong
Am I still one of Americas best

Years gone by now
Married, raising kids
Sweeping floors for rich folk
High on prescription meds
Know Im a, hard working Veteran,
They dont see, the war in my head
A problem for someone else to handle
Forget I’m, one of Americas best

Im still the watchman
Not doing fine
Dying at the VA
In their, cancer treatment line
Do you, think the’ll still bury me
With my medals on my chest
Cause they, act like I did them wrong
But I was one of Americas best
