The Lyrics

Actually about Desert Storm...
Went there boldly
Sweatin' in the sun
It took a billion
Public enemy number one
The heat of summer
I'd never felt that hot
In Iraq

Some were eighteen
Didn't have a care
Working for peanuts
Not a dime to spare
But they were lean and
Strong everywhere
In Iraq

Their hands were steady
They shot straight and true
Their walk had purpose
Their steps quick and light
And they held firmly
To what they felt was right
In Iraq

In Iraq, They were strong as they could be
In Iraq, the heat never got to me
In Iraq, they were something to see
In Iraq

And they shot arrow straight
Unencumbered by the weight
Of all their packs and their supplies
They stood proud, they stood tall
High above it all
I still believed in my dreams

Twelve years now
Where'd they all go?
Twelve years
I still don't know
I sit and I wonder sometimes
Where they've gone

And sometimes late at night
When they're bathed in the infrared light
The moon comes callin' a ghostly white
And I recall
I recall

In Iraq, shootin' arrow straight
In Iraq, chargin' from the gate
In Iraq, carryin' the weight
In Iraq

In Iraq, the sun upon my skin
In Iraq, hard against the wind
In Iraq, I see myself again
In Iraq

Oh, In Iraq!
