Get Rid Of The Advertisements

To Honor Gardens Made Of Stone
 

I stand beteen white crosses that rise row after row
A sad symbol of our honor as far as eyes can go
These are the graves of soldiers whose demise helped keep us
free
This is America's holy land, bedrock of liberty



Beside my feet there blossoms a gapping hole, a grave
Dug for some brave young soldier whose life they could not save
From the horrors of the battlefield..his lord has set him free
Then his brothers brought his body back to rest here peacefully



The procession it approaches. The coffin comes in sight
Tis covered by our countrys flag...it was draped on him for flight
I see the sad young burgler..trumpet in his hand
And 21 young rifleman with weapons in their hands


Followed by an aging preacher , his heart shows in his eyes
He will conduct the service for this brave soldierboy
See theres his sad eyed momma and his proud still handsome. dad
And his brothers and his sister..best buds he ever had



With royal and regal splendor pallbears ..at snails pace
Gently accept his coffin..and bear it to his space
There guns will fire a last salute and turn and step away
Leaving sad and abject sorrow on every single face


Soon with a crack to jar mans soul..gun barrels spouted fire
Three times they fird a volly across the funeral bier
Then like a haunted blessing ..taps began to play
To put a heart break finish to this boys memorial day



The flag folded tricornered...with a motion sure and slow
The leading officer will take..and with it to mom he'll go
He will kneel in front of moma and place it in her hand
And assure that her country cares and that it understands



And that every year in the month of May a tribute we shall pay
To every one who ever served at home or far away
To those who live and those who died we offer our respect
And fly our countries colors ...to observe..Lest some forget



God bless the USA.and those who serve in her defense
