Brantley Gilbert Lyrics

One Hell Of An Amen Lyrics
Preacher said he died too young
Over there toting that gun
For Uncle Sam and our freedom
Mommy and daddy dressed in black
They folded up that flag
Handed it to dad and started praying
Yeah he went out 21 guns blazin'

[Chorus:]
And that's one hell of an amen
That's the only way to go
Fighting the good fight
Til the good Lord calls you home
And so be well my friend
Til I see you again
This is our last goodbye
It's a hell of an amen

Doctor said he ain't got long
He just smiled, said bring it on
Well, if you think I'm scared you got me all wrong
No, a little cancer can't break me
My heart's right and I believe
We all hit our knees and started praying
No he never gave up
Said the good Lord's waiting

[Chorus:]
And that's one hell of an amen
That's the only way to go
Fighting the good fight
Til the good Lord calls you home
And so be well my friend
Til I see you again
This is our last goodbye
It's a hell of an amen

So be well my friend
'Til I see you again
This is our last goodbye
It's a hell of an amen
Amen
That's a hell of amen

One Hell Of An Amen Info:

• Brantley Gilbert explained:
"One of my dearest friends from back home was an Army Ranger. He lost his best friend over there, and watched it happen. The guy was in front of him in a Humvee, and he got hit and blown up. He was telling me about the situation and talking to the guys' dad and his family, and how much that affected him."

"I wasn't with my friend Josh, but the feelings I felt when he was telling me the story were nowhere near close to what he felt, but visually I felt like I could see it. I felt like I was there. I actually got a chance to meet his friend's sister at a show."
