David Allan Coe — The Purple Heart lyrics

I should get the purple heart for loving you after all the pain you put me through
When they start passing medals out to fools I will get the purple heart for loving you

There was nothing in the headlines to day you won the war
The one and only casually was me
You put me out of action so many times before
And left me on this battlefield to bleed
And I should get the purple heart...
[ steel ]
No one knows that I'm a hero there's no medals on my chest
All my wounds are hidden deep inside
I volunteered to love you hoping for the best
But all you ever done was cheat and lie
I should get the purple heart...
I should get the purple heart...
