"I Just Came Back from a War" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Darryl Worley. It was released in September 2006 as the second single from his album Here and Now. It peaked at number 18 on Billboard magazine's Hot Country Songs chart and reached number 15 on the U.S. Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100. The song was written by Worley and Wynn Varble.


The song was inspired by a war veteran Worley met who was having a difficult time adjusting to life back home after being in a war zone for many months. Worley says, "It made me think about what it must be like for all the soldiers, who have served in conflicts past and present, to adjust to being back home. The strain of war must be incredible." He adds, "This song is from the soldier's perspective and the message is, 'Hey man, cut me a little slack if I need a little time to re-adjust here. I'll get there but be a little patient with me - I just came back from a war."[1]
