Searching For A Soldier's Grave

Song Author Roy Acuff Performer: Hank Williams Jr Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]You ask me stranger why I made this [F]journey
[C]Why I cross three thousand miles of ocean [G7]waves
[C]Like many others my loved one was killed in [F]action
And that's [C]why I'm here [G7]I'm searching for his [C]grave

Somewhere here among these many [F]thousands
[C]Of Americans who all died true and [G7]brave
That's [C]where I know I'll find him [F]resting
[C]So I'm here [G7]I'm searching for his [C]grave

Beside each cross mark here all [F]around me
[C]I´ll kneel down and gladly say a [G7]prayer
For [C]all their loved ones back home across the [F]ocean
Whose [C]heart like mine is [G7]buried over [C]here

Somewhere here among these many [F]thousands
[C]Of Americans who all died true and [G7]brave
That's [C]where I know I'll find him [F]resting
[C]So I'm here [G7]I'm searching for his [C]grave

When I come to the spot where he's [F]sleeping
[C]I know it will cause more heartaches [G7]inside
But [C]I'll long to be by his side once more and [F]tell him
[C]Tell him I love him and [G7]I will until I [C]die  

Somewhere here among these many [F]thousands
[C]Of Americans who all died true and [G7]brave
That's [C]where I know I'll find him [F]resting
[C]So I'm here [G7]I'm searching for his [C]grave

You ask me stranger why I made this journey
Why I cross three thousand miles of ocean waves
Like many others my loved one was killed in action
And that's why I'm here I'm searching for his grave

Somewhere here among these many thousands
Of Americans who all died true and brave
That's where I know I'll find him resting
So I'm here I'm searching for his grave

Beside each cross mark here all around me
I´ll kneel down and gladly say a prayer
For all their loved ones back home across the ocean
Whose heart like mine is buried over here

Somewhere here among these many thousands
Of Americans who all died true and brave
That's where I know I'll find him resting
So I'm here I'm searching for his grave

When I come to the spot where he's sleeping
I know it will cause more heartaches inside
But I'll long to be by his side once more and tell him
Tell him I love him and I will until I die

Somewhere here among these many thousands
Of Americans who all died true and brave
That's where I know I'll find him resting
So I'm here I'm searching for his grave
