audio: boy to hero


This new song called “Boy To Ramadi” will be my post for Memorial Day. It’s about a hero from our ongoing fight with the boys from Islam.

Along with this generation’s warriors, always on my mind at this time, and throughout the year, is our Vietnam Vets and their fellow troops who did not come home. And the thousands who took their own life after returning to Liberal America where the cruelest people think themselves to be saints, and true selfless service was disregarded.

Boy To Ramadi>

Bike ride to the park
falling down, you skin your knee
Still afraid of the dark

Mom said: It will be alright. Mom said: It will be alright.

Played hard and lost
Growing up, you start to see
you'll catch the next one tossed

Dad said: It will be alright. Coach said: It will be alright.

Try so hard, you want to show them.
Fast become the man you wanna be.

Bootcamp was a hoot
Worked like a dog and slept like a log
Not hitting all you shoot

Sarge said: It will be alright. Sarge said: It will be alright.

One day you fly
across the world with brothers and friends
Some of them will die

Sarge said: It will be alright. Sarge said: It will be alright.

Carrying a heavy load, the
sun beats down, no way to cool
Worse is under the road

Sarge said: It will be alright. Sarge said: It will be alright.

The road explodes and drives you backwards
The sky is black, a hand is all you see.

Sarge said: It will be alright. Sarge said: It will be alright.

The black starts to bright
Heaven comes after the pain
Walking into the light

God said: It will be alright. God said: It will be alright.

Looking down on your boy
He rides his bike and starts to cry
Dad's better than any toy

Mom said: It will be alright. Mom said: It will be alright.

Fight or die, or both, no option
Less would leave us all overrun.

Call you hero, you are remembered
Time stops tears. Cheers for the battles won…

and freedom under the sun.

    • Zilla,

      You are a friend. You come to my blog with positive energy and it rubs off. You have cheered me up and I thank you.

      The song will sound even better with a band. If I can find a few more inspiring people like you, I will do something with the song. I really want someone else to sing it, while I do the harmony.
