Born To Die

If I ever lose my life in a battle ground,
And my body is ne’er again found,
Tell my mom not to cry,
‘Cause I am a soldier, Born To Die.
 
If I don’t come back when I should,
And don’t repay your faith the ways I could,
Pretty lass, trust me, I will always be nigh,
‘Cause I am a soldier, Born To Die.
 
If I ever failed you as a worthy son,
And didn’t man up before I was gone,
My father, let me end my life on a high,
‘Cause I am a soldier, Born To Die.
 
If I never get to see your faces again,
And laugh about old times forgetting the pain,
Dear friends, remember me with a smile, not a sigh,
‘Cause I am a soldier, Born To Die.
