I never thought that this is where I'd settle down.
I thought I'd die an old man back in my hometown.
They gave me this plot of land,
Me and some other men, for a job well-done.
There's a big white house,
Sits on a hill just up the road.
The man inside,
He cried the day they brought me home.
They folded up a flag and told my mom and dad,
"We're proud of your son."

And I'm proud to be,
On this peaceful piece of property.
I'm on sacred ground,
And I'm in the best of company.
I'm thankful for those thankful,
For the things I've done.
I can rest in peace,
I'm one of the chosen ones.
I made it to Arlington.

I remember daddy brought me here when I was eight.
We searched all day,
To find out where my grand-dad lay.
When we finally found that cross,
He said, "Son this is what it costs,
To keep us free."

Now here I am, a thousand stones away from him.
He recognized me on the first day I came in.
And it gave me a chill when he clicked his heels,
And saluted me.

And I'm proud to be,
On this peaceful piece of property.
I'm on sacred ground,
And I'm in the best of company.
I'm thankful for those thankful,
For the things I've done.
I can rest in peace,
I'm one of the chosen ones.
I made it to Arlington.

And every time I hear twenty-one guns,
I know they brought another hero home to us.

We're thankful for those thankful,
For the things we've done.
We can rest in peace,
'Cause we are the chosen ones.
We made it to Arlington.

Yeah, dust to dust,
Don't cry for us.
We made it to Arlington.
