After my tour I got home one regular night. . Uniform and gun belt on my living room floor so I didn't wake my wife.
The son of bitch killed you and got in your car and drove right past me. I sat on the porch and watched him go by me on Church Street.

I stood guard over you and watched your wife put you in the ground.

We knocked the shit out of each other on the field.
I stand over your spot on marble mill. Nobody reaches in a bag ever!
