Dedicated to all who have served...

lyrics

Four score and many years ago
Our sons bought forth from this grain
Told by those high and mounted
You call will not be in vain

Set up being all the lines
The Alamo their life were defined
Wives and child shout for the slain
You call will not be in vain

Time pass, and time goes
Only why the wind knows
Crying Out, Calling Out
My life will not be, in vain

Upon the beach they did land
With many hands dug in the sand.
Different world, that lords may be.
As they scaled the walls of Normandy.

High in the trees at night
Vietname dazed with fire and lights.
Alone, confused, bruised and abused
The heroes made their own light

The sacrifice that you did make.
For the honor, country that you have made.
With arms straight out, shouting loud.
Your life was not in vain.

Stuck in a hole in Iraq.
Praying for the end of the attack.
Trying their best, for all who'd been slain.
The conquest should not be in vain.

Time passes, and time goes
Only why the wind knows
Men Calling Out, Boys Crying Out
Your life was not in vain.

Years and years travel by
The same story, the same time.
Saving those from war insane.
Your life was never in vain.
