<br />
You can almost see his face<br />
Set with just a trace<br />
Knowing not what lies along his tale<br />
<br />
Still he ran to add his name<br />
When the first chance he had came<br />
And proudly marched his way on down that trail<br />
<br />
O&rsquo;re the water he would cross<br />
With an innocence soon lost<br />
He&rsquo;d witness more than any eye should see<br />
<br />
But when that moment did arrive<br />
All the courage penned inside<br />
Was bursting forth to break the hero free<br />
<br />
<i>He said, &ldquo;I know you don&rsquo;t understand,<br />
I did no more than any other man.&rdquo;<br />
He said, &ldquo;I know you can&rsquo;t understand,<br />
I did no more than any other man&hellip;&rdquo;</i><br />
<br />
From the farm he called his home<br />
To this soil not his own<br />
He made his way through the countryside of war<br />
<br />
When duty called to choice<br />
He answered strong in voice<br />
With endeavors that could never ask for more<br />
<br />
<i>He said, &ldquo;I know you don&rsquo;t understand,<br />
I did no more than any other man.&rdquo;<br />
He said, &ldquo;I know you can&rsquo;t understand,<br />
I did no more than any other man&hellip;&rdquo;<br />
</i><br />
The years they swiftly fade<br />
With a family and a trade<br />
He&rsquo;d never breathe a word about that day<br />
<br />
But that&rsquo;s the way it goes<br />
With heroes, I suppose<br />
They never claim the valor they display<br />
<br />
<i>He said, &ldquo;I know you don&rsquo;t understand,<br />
I did no more than any other man.&rdquo;<br />
He said, &ldquo;I know you can&rsquo;t understand,<br />
I did no more than any other man&hellip;&rdquo;<br />
But you&rsquo;re not any other man.</i><br />
