 OUR DUTY CALLS
I cry alone
in the silent night
because in my heart
i know this can't be right
A soldier leaves
his family cries
and everyday they pray
that nobody dies
we need to fight
we need to stand tall
we need to remember
that the towers did fall
Most of us pray
and hope its enough
but what do you do
when things start to get rough
and prayers won't do
when a body falls
we have a job to do
Our duty calls

HER HUSBAND WAS A SOLDIER
In the silence of the night
a women gets the call
It appears that her husband
wont come back this fall
without a word
she hangs up the phone
she has to stay strong
she can't leave her kids alone
still she cries
from her eyes and her heart
she doesn't know what to do
her whole life is falling apart
but when she stops
she dries her tears
for a moment shes calm
then the moment disappears
worried and scared
she doesn't know what to do
now she feels sick
like she has the flu
but instead of giving in
she still puts up a fight
and somehow finds a way
to make it through the night
when morning comes
and the kids are awake
she tries to find the courage
not knowing how long this will take
you see her children
are but 3 and 5
and she doesn't know how to say
that "daddy" is no longer alive
she tells them of heaven
and how its a nice place to stay
and how "daddy's" there now
and how we all should pray
a week later shes still crying
and to be honest i would be to
if i had only known the horror
that she is going through
Her husband was a soldier
he fought for us to be free
and some of us are to blind
to even begin to see
Her husband was a soldier
he fought for us to be free
firemen, cops and "daddy's"
they're all hero's to me
Her husband was a soldier
he fought for US until his end
Pray for our hero's
because its US that they defend

 JUST PRAY ?THE WAR ON IRAQ
For those of you want to help our soldiers
Get off your lazy ass
Stop blaming it all on President Bush
Stop letting just one more day pass
Our soldiers need help now
Not only when your able
Let's shuffle the deck
Lets turn the tables
Now you are a soldier
Fighting in Iraq
Now you have a family
Now you may never come back
But now you feel proud
Now all that mad
To be serving your country
and living in Baghdad
Back in your reality
You'll find it hard to find
any one person
Who is that proud or kind
To stand up and fight
Defend it till the death
"God bless America"
was in there last breath
Because they know the truth
That freedoms worth the fight
Freedom isn't everywhere
So defend your right
Remember our soldiers
And thank them everyday
Remember our soldiers
And please, just pray

The Rebs in power
We seem to cower
Our country split
They say we'll quit
We're still loyal
Plans not foiled
Union in blue
Seem to few
Rebs in gray
Seen 'cross the plains
With all seceded
And many defeated
Country heed no more
For it's the Civil War

Nat Turner’s slave rebellion,
The 1850 Compromise,
With all things going on,
The war was no surprise.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin,
The Kansas-Nebraska Act,
Bleeding Kansas happens,
This is a true fact.

Scott sues for freedom,
Lincoln and Douglas debate,
Brown raids a ferry,
The war, it still awaits.

Lincoln is president,
South Carolina secedes,
The Civil War awaiting,
Finally succeeds.

First a battle at Fort Sumter,
Then the battle at Bull Run,
And the south won,
The battle has just begun.

Shiloh, Antietam,
Yanks win,
But at Fredricksburg,
The South Wins again.

Lincoln delivers,
The Emancipation Proclamation,
We are trying,
To fight for slavery cancellation.

Vicksburg, Gettysburg,
Turning points in war,
Sherman burns down plantations,
We took quite a score.

Lincoln wins re-election,
Charity for all,
Too bad the price was,
For lots of us to fall.

Appomattox Courthouse,
Lee surrenders,
Yanks win!
And rejoice with our tired defenders.

John Wilkes Booth,
Has Lincoln assassinated,
The south was,
Quite fascinated.

The Civil War is over,
Over six hundred thousand lost,
The price was over $20 billion,
But no slavery was the cost.

Yankse won the Civil War,
Some rejoice even more,
But the blood and tears shed,
Will be in dreams forever more.

As I watched the cannon blow
I wonder how many days I will have left
Till I perish, wounded in fierce combat
Or till my new found country rings a bell of freedom.

Now I watch a Confederate fall
Hit by a bullet
And it is taking its toll
But forgive me, sir
I am not allowed to care at all.

Many years later
The countries of our world collide
It's our side or theirs in a gruesome race
To watch their flags fall.

Only what is a decade or two later
A flame is rekindled
Though this one is not so loving and kind
They broke their promise
This horrible battle is still replaying in my mind.

Vietnam was a-rage
Not too long ago
Yet we aided them
Even though it may have hurt us so.

Now we come to rest at today
Where sniper rifles do not fail to hit their target
And dead bodies decay on the abandoned, war-stricken streets
Afghanistan and Iraq in union
The battle is getting quite intense
Hence these battle scars
They hurt everywhere
They have worn and torn my heart
But not just me
You, too, share my pain.
