Remembering on this Memorial Day
Like picket fences standing there stretched out in many rows,
So many thoughts pass through my mind - does anybody know?
These people sacrificed their lives, does anybody care?
To defend the freedoms that we have in battles "over there."
It matters not your goal in life or what it is you do,
Just put that life on a little hold, cause Uncle Sam wants you.
We've built so many monuments and dedicate this day to thank
the veterans living still and those who've passed away.
I know we have our problems, but we need to understand
Our freedoms and our sacrifice make this a better land.
So pause for just a little while and, maybe even pray
for the veterans gone and living still, GOD BLESS THE USA!
