Lyrics of “Arlington” by Trace Atkins

Lyrics of “Arlington” by Trace Atkins:

I never thought that this is where I’d settle down
I thought I’d die an old man back in my hometown
They gave me this plot of land, me and some other men, for a job well done
There’s a big white house sits on a hill just up the road
The man inside he cried the day they brought me home
They folded up a flag and told my mom and dad
‘We’re proud of your son’

And I’m proud to be on this peaceful piece of property
I’m on sacred ground and I’m in the best of company
I’m thankful for those thankful for the things I’ve done
I can rest in peace, I’m one of the chosen ones, I made it to Arlington

I remember that my daddy brought me here when I was eight
We searched all day to find out where my granddad lay
And when we finally found that cross
He said, ‘son this is what it cost to keep us free’
Now here I am a thousand stones away from him
He recognized me on the first day I came in
And it gave me a chill when he clicked his heels and saluted me

I’m proud to be on this peaceful piece of property
I’m on sacred ground and in the best of company
I’m thankful for those thankful for the things I’ve done
I can rest in peace I’m one of the chosen ones, I made it to Arlington

And every time I hear twenty-one guns
I know they brought another hero home to us

We’re thankful for those thankful for the things we’ve done
We can rest in peace, ’cause we were the chosen ones
We made it to Arlington, yea, dust to dust
Don’t cry for us, we made it to Arlington
