George Strait

"The Weight of the Badge"

[Verse 1]
It's gonna be a long one, another grave yard shift
As he says goodbye to his wife and kids
He spends his life just like his dad's
Driving away under the weight of the badge

[Verse 2]
He's seen it all in his fifteen years
Watchin' our backs, facing our fears
Lord knows it ain't no easy task
Keeping us safe under the weight of the badge

[Verse 3]
He swore that oath to protect and serve
Pours his heart and soul into both those words
Lays his life on the line
And the line he walks is razor-fine
Tempered strength is always tough
But he ain't gonna buckle under the weight of the badge

[Verse 4]
Not that long ago, he woke up in the hospital
With his wife and kids praying by his bed
He said, "I'm gonna be alright
There's just some times you gotta fight"
And the truth is, nothing truer could be said
I do it for us and I do it for them
And I ain't gonna buckle under the weight of the badge

[Verse 5]
It doesn't weigh a lot until you put it on
And the weight of it is staggering
Then duty calls each time
He knows he's gotta answer
And it's all in the hand of
The heavy weight of the badge
And he ain't gonna buckle
Under the weight of the badge
No, he ain't gonna buckle
Under the weight of the badge
