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.

Come Hell or High Water
©2009 Bennett Neuhauser. All rights reserved. Bennett Neuhauser is a.k.a. Ben Sage. BMI.

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 …


[CHORUS]:
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,

[CHORUS]

[INSTRUMENTAL BREAK]

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

[CHORUS 2X AND CLOSE]

[GUITAR CHORDS USED: E, A, B]
