Get Rid Of The Advertisements

In Tribute
 



Covered with glory my flag flew in Iraq
Oer the base of our troops strong and true
Now it flies again as my way to say thanks
To our veterans.. for all that you do



Like that guy who stands straight when he sees our flag
Who would salute it if only he could
But that year that he spent in the battles wild fray
Cost him his right arm.. doing good




He was only eighteen when war called him away
It's horrors he'll never forget
How bombs fell and shrieked in their perilous flight
That a nightmare he's still dreaming yet



He came back aged inside. tho his body stayed young
His injuries decreed him a vet
That kind that we honor on one day every year
That is if we just don't forget



On Nov 11th some people will pass
Those sad vets both the hungry and poor
So caught up in living they forget the price payed
For a life here on American shores



For most vets it's a day with out fanfare or drums
Just wreaths laid .. forget the parade
They were yesterdays soldiers who gave up their life
For the many advances we've made



But some will say thanks to our warriors bold
Pay them homage.. Remember their day
For they were our heroes and they made it back
To the hometowns where they used to play




So I'll fly my proud flag... Lord.. long may it wave
Oer the home of the brave and the free
And I'll stand below it .. my hand on my heart
To say thank you for Teddy and me




Thank you for fighting afraid you might die
Thanking you for keeping us free
Thank you for letting me know in my life
There are heroes.. they're all around me
