Rumer - The Snow White Rows Of Arlington Lyrics


There’re a lot of perfect reasons
To never fight another war
There’re a lot of perfect questions
As to what’s worth fighting for
And there’re a lot of perfect fools
Who refuse to read the
Writing on the wall

But the truth is there are people
Who have made it crystal clear
That it is their holy mission
To destroy all we hold dear
And they are busily out searching
For the fire to make this
Towering nation fall

Adios, sweet home and family
I am off to fight a war
That must be won
You will know why I am going
When you see
The snow white rows of Arlington

Every blade of grass is sacred
Every headstone is a shrine
To somebody who was willing
To put existence on the line
The liberty we take for granted
It was purchased with their
Patriotic lives

Are their sleeping spirits restless
Do they listen for the sound
Of the mustering of armies
To defend their hallowed ground
Will we rise to the occasion
And insure that their life’s
Legacies survive?

Through the willows blow soft breezes
They are whispering my name
Asking did they die for nothing
Am I the keeper of the flame?

Adios, my home and family
Wave goodbye to your
West Texas native son
You will know why I am leaving
When you see
The snow white rows of Arlington

Adios, sweet home and family
Wave goodbye to your
West Texas native son
And if it be my fate, you’ll find me
Proudly sleeping in the snow white rows
When you see
The snow white rows of Arlington
