Martha, tonight I lie here dying
Over my head a desert moon
You won't hear this soldier cryin'
I expect the same from you

Martha, tonight I almost caught the man
Who hated us all because we're free
But I didn't see a knife in his hand
And now he stole my life from me

Say a prayer for me, Martha
Say a prayer for me, Martha

BREAK

Martha my wife, I love you
I';m sorry for what will never be
Remember me through the child I gave you
And Martha, please don't weep for me

Say a prayer for me, Martha
Say a prayer for me, Martha
Say a prayer for me, Martha

BREAK
