My Little Girlcountry as flag
Her daddy was five years gone
By the time that she was six years old
It was her and her mom, grams and her dog Pete
In a little blue house at the end of the street
Her friends asked her what her daddy did
And You know how it is when you're just a kid
She couldn't tell them that she didn't know, so
She just said what she knew and told �em

He's a soldier ridin' in planes
He's got a painted face doesn't feel pain
And he's chasin' the sun, dodgin' the rain and
He don't go runnin' away when it gets tough
He's made of that stuff
That Don't let you down, boy
No, he's a soldier
He's a soldier

10 years later after a pillow fight
Well, She and her friends got to talkin' about life
And what they're gonna do when they graduate
And what kind of guy they're gonna marry
One and all of her friends said the usual stuff
You know doctors and lawyers and bankers and such
But She didn't even bat an eye
When she started talkin' �bout her dream guy

He's a soldier ridin' in planes
He's got a painted face doesn't feel pain
And he's chasin' the sun, dodgin' the rain and
He don't go runnin' away when it gets tough
He's made of that stuff
That Don't let you down, boy
No, he's a soldier
He's a soldier

Well, She married a guy named Mike
and they started life
But Mike got called three years ago
She joined the corps
To protect and serve, defend to the end
An IMD flash, last she'd see
She beat her father
Maybe he will meet her
If he makes it.

She's a soldier ridin' in planes
She's got a painted face doesn't feel pain
And she's chasin' the sun, dodgin' the rain and
She don't go runnin' away when it gets tough
She's made of that stuff
That don't let you down, boy
No, she's a soldier
She's a soldier
