She was proud man's daughter and a beautiful one
He was a football star and generals son
Flowers in her hair and love in her eyes
She became a soldier's wife
She has a passionate heart and a gentle hand
And the promise of forever in a wedding band
Oh to carry that weight takes a special kind
Said she's proud to be a soldier's wife

Chorus:
It takes all of her strength when he's gone
Cause the days are hard and the nights are long
But she knew the risk and the sacrifice
When she became a soldier's wife

Before too long they had a baby girl
She mailed him letters and pictures
Of her little blonde curls
And she prays Lord please bring him home all right
Cause that the keep of a soldier's wife

Chorus:
It takes all of her strength when he's gone
Cause the days are hard and the nights are long
But she knew the risk and the sacrifice
When she became a soldier's wife

One day their little girl walked out that door
Following a man in a uniform
It was destiny for a new young bride
When she became a solider's wife
Oh to carry that weight takes a special kind
She's a soldier's wife
She's a soldier's wife
