No stranger to the pain...

Faded flag tattooed high on his right arm
When the going gets tough he remains calm
Walks like it's sunny on a rainy day
Ain't no stranger when it comes to pain
He's a Veteran of the Vietnam war
Even the devil's afraid to knock on his door
He won't back down, he'll defend his rights
A good old boy still fighting the fight
Too many Brothers fell on a warrior's field
Fought just the same knowing their fate was sealed
Remembers every Brother that he ever met
Shed a million tears and he ain't done yet
He still stands at attention when Old Glory passes by
If you ain't standing tall he's gonna question why
You had better have an answer and it better be true
Seen too many return wrapped in the Red, White and Blue
He's the guy wearing that worn out military hat
With Eagles and flag pins, mini ribbons, this and that
You can see he's been through hell by the look in his eyes
His knees may buckle when he remembers the goodbye's
Faded flag tattooed high on his right arm
When the going gets tough he remains calm
Walks like it's sunny on a rainy day
Cause tears are hidden in the pouring rain
He ain't no stranger to the pain.....
