THE WATCH
Clay Webster / Ashley Cleveland / Darden Smith

I’m pulling the rev watch again
Section leader ain’t my friend
Busted my ass all day long
To stay up with a telephone
There’s a drunk watch down in medical
Timmy came back with shore patrol
Nothing else to be passed down
Relieve the watch and settle down
I’m a sailor in the Navy

I’ve got 90 reasons why
I can’t close my eyes
Looking out beyond the horizon line
In the dead of night
I can’t close my eyes

I’m a half a world away
From where I was on the day
That I saw the towers fall
That was when I heard the call
I never set out to save the world
But I remember that little girl
Tears on her face fear in her heart
I stood up to do my part
I’m a sailor in the Navy

I’ve got 90 reasons why
I can’t close my eyes
Looking out beyond the horizon line
In the dead of night
I can’t close my eyes

So I’m counting lines in the log book
Shoot the shit with the morning cook
Swept the quarter deck two times
A little bit bored but I don’t mind
Standing tall for all to see
I hold the line of liberty
In the darkest hour of the night
I keep freedom shining bright
I’m a sailor in the Navy

I’ve got 90 reasons why
I can’t close my eyes
Looking out beyond the horizon line
In the dead of night
I can’t close my eyes
