Dog Tags - Aaron Watson

Growing up I never cared too much for Superman
I guess he never could measure up next to my old man
There's no S on his chest, it's just an old weathered flag
God knows my heroes don't wear capes

They wear dog tags and they stand tall, lined up on the wall of freedom
Yeah, those dog tags in the cross hairs, they're always right there when you need them
You can bet their boots will hit the ground running, every time it hits the fan
God knows my heroes don't wear capes

For me it's not some country boy banging on a guitar
It's not a politician preaching, or a movie star
And I'll tell ya one thing that's a fact, it sure ain't that quarterback
God know my heroes don't wear capes

My heroes wear dog tags and they stand tall, lined up on the wall of freedom
Yeah, those dog tags in the cross hairs, they're always right there when you need them
You can bet their boots will hit the ground running, every time it hits the fan
God knows my heroes don't wear capes

There's a star spangled covered coffin, a little boy watching his momma cry
Remember, it's more than just beer and barbecue when those fireworks fly

My heroes wear dog tags

My heroes wear dog tags and they stand tall, lined up on the wall of freedom
Yeah, those dog tags in the cross hairs, they're always right there when you need them
You can bet their boots will hit the ground running, every time it hits the fan
God knows my heroes don't wear capes
God knows my heroes don't wear capes
God knows my heroes don't wear capes

Growing up I never cared too much for Superman
I guess he never could measure up next to my old man
