I WANT HIM BACK FROM IRAQ

On  Iraq War song lyrics: I Want Him Back from Iraq. Selfish unpatriotic, folded flag. Mick Terry YouTube YouTube,  performed  LIVE  by  MICK TERRY   (soon!)

Yeah, it was me who was all rah-rah when he signed up.
Yeah, I had bought the yada yada from those at the top.
We'd all been swept up in the frenzy
as they stoked the fire with fear.
& now 3 tours & 4 years later, he's still there & not back here.

A     I WANT HIM BACK FROM IRAQ and all in one piece.
    BACK FROM IRAQ and home safe with me.
    Call me selfish, self-centered. Wave your flag in my face.
    Call me unpatriotic. Close your ears to my case.
    I WANT HIM BACK FROM IRAQ.

Yeah, it was me who said he should go & leave these shores
back when we all believed their "proof" we had to go to war.
He's barely even had a chance
to see his wife and little son.
The only photos his child's seen are of his daddy with a gun.

    CHORUS  
A

        I hope, I pray for a miracle that he stay alive each day.
        It truly is a miracle for him to survive that way.

I've got petunias down the sidewalk, red, pink and blue,
through which two officers come walking to bring the news.
It seems my son was flying stateside
when his plane was hit and fragged.
I sent my son to fight for freedom. Now I've got this folded flag.

B     I've got HIM BACK FROM IRAQ 'tho' not in one piece.
    BACK FROM IRAQ, he's back home with me.
    Call me selfish, self-centered. Wave your flag in my face.
    Call me unpatriotic. Close your ears to my case.
    I've got HIM BACK FROM IRAQ.
