about

This song was inspired by the episode “The Message” from the TV show Firefly. It’s about a soldier in battle at Serenity Valley. He’s doing his best to fight and win, but like most of the soldiers at that battle, the man dies. However, before he passes, he tells his friend to bring his body home to his parents.

lyrics

Bring me home, boys, bring me home.
Bring me home, boys, bring me home.
Go and tell my momma I died a man.
And when my breath has left, bring me home.

My sergeant said, boy, don’t you run.
I don’t care if the alliance comes.
I saw him die, but I took a stand.
So go and tell my papa I died a man.

I was brave, boy, as best I can.
I felt my gun shake, as a shot a man,
But bullets pierced my heart, can’t feel my hands.
Now go and tell my brother I died a man

Just you and me, boy, are left alive.
But I can tell, not long, until I die.
I did not run cause you’re my friend.
So go and tell my sister I died a man.
