Lyrics

LEAVE
Chad Lee / Dess Fletcher

You traded your ball cap for a pair of dog tags and some combat boots
You lowered your ears when they cut your long hair, cut crew
You don’t get no sleep and you work for weeks in those same ol’ fatigues
You dream all day about the day you get to go on leave


CHORUS:
Sergeant says go home stay out of trouble mind your P’s and Q’s
You’ve got a GI loan to pick up that phone and say baby I’m coming to you
hang up that uniform get a little airborne in some cowboy boots
You’re on leave for awhile so leave with a smile when leave is through


Gather up your buddies get a little muddy in your pickup truck
Party while the moon up sun does a flip flop, drink up
Grab a girl and dance have a little romance do everything you can
You gotta make it last before they drag you back, back to Uncle Sam


CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
You gave up your freedom for everybody’s freedom
You’ve been bustin’ your back
It’d be a damn crime if you didn’t take time to kick back and relax

So hang up that uniform get a little airborne in some cowboy boots
You’re on leave for awhile so leave with a smile when leave is through
You’ll have a grin on your face when you’re back on base when leave is through
