lyrics

Scarred Soul
Mario Cavazos / Monte Warden

When I was a young man, my
Grandpa told me that
Crying was only for scarred souls
As I looked in his sad eyes, I
Could see all his pain and the
Silence that comes from
A scarred soul

Just gotta make it tomorrow
And never show too much sorrow
Maybe someday you’ll understand
The way the world seems to this humble man

Grandpa served in the second
World War but he never talked
Much about it
Both his sons followed
His steps to Vietnam
And joined in the ranks
Of the scarred souls

Just gotta make it tomorrow
And never show too much sorrow
Maybe someday you’ll understand
The way the world seems to this humble man

My journey took me to
The sands of Iraq
Did what I had to do
Just to come back
There’s three generations
Of membership now
In God, Country, and scarred souls

Just gotta make it tomorrow
And never show too much sorrow
Maybe someday you’ll understand
The way the world seems to this humble man

There’s a scarred soul
Inside of this humble man
