Come Hell or High Water

by Bennett Neuhauser

This song was written with appreciation for the extraordinary challenges facing members of our armed services and their families. It carries with it no intended political statement, other than a prayer for peace, for the end of war everywhere, and for the safe return of our troops now.

Orders came down this morning / For me and my men
Six weeks from tomorrow / We gotta ship out again

I wasn’t sure how to tell you / I knew the hurt it would bring
It’s gonna feel like forever / But I promise one thing …

Come hell or high water
I’m comin’ back to you
No matter what kind of hell
I gotta go through
I’m a man on a mission
With a job to do
But come hell or high water
I’m comin’ back to you

Third tour of duty / Maybe third time’s a charm
Maybe this is the last time / I’ll long for your arms

The kids’ll be wondering / Where their daddy can be
Tell ‘em I’ll be with them / Every night in their dreams … And,



Now your eyes are all misty / I’m all twisted inside
But we made a commitment / And we can’t run and hide

So, keep yourself strong, now / ‘Cause you’re stronger than me
Keep a candle in the window / And keep a ribbon on the tree …, ‘Cause
