I wrote this as a tribute to the soldiers. I don't believe in war but to me they are heros. My voice is a bit gravely on this as it was at the very beginning of my vocal chord cancer, and it had started to affect my voice.

Do you heed the call?
Do you give your all?
When you light the light and fight the fight,
You're standing tall, for all to see

Do you want be?
Living life that's free
And giving to your children, all the blessings
That this land can give

Do you make them proud?
Do you sing out loud?
Is the message there, and do you care
To show us all what you can be

Is your country free?
Will it always be?
Do you realize that they give their lives
So you and I can live in peace?


They're out there in the storm, and they're there because they choose to be
Giving themselves for our freedom that's what it costs
They're making a difference in this world because they do not flee
Their bravery and courage in the face of the fear and all the loss

Yes they love this land
So they make a stand
To protect our way of life, you know the cause they have
The cause is grand

Does it make you feel?
A love that's real
Do you realize that they give their lives
So you and I can live in peace?

Nice Tribute
Appropriate tribute for Memorial Day weekend. I like the pedal steel and fiddle. Are they loops? Nice vocal performance.

Yes loops. The pedal steel and fiddle are actually from the brooks & dunn band. Thanks, and thanks to all the soldiers who give so much o themselves for us all.

I couldn't agree more Fred "I don't believe in war but to me they are heros"

Is there any instrument you don't play?
I love the pedal steel in this one. Your voice sounded fine to me. Thank you for such a wonderful post and tribute to our service people.

Enjoyed - Thanks for sharing,

The call
My son's best friend, a rock lead guitarist, was living with us on 9/11. Following, against my deep objections, he enlisted in the Marines. After his decision, I've been nothing but supportive. (Too late to do otherwise.)

We needed to do something, and this is what he did. Three tours in Iraq. Just enough wounds to remember it all, not enough to disable him. He was assigned to become an instructor in GA, but needed to go back into action, so became a front line medic. He now is in Afghanistan.

One cannot overstate the courage, the character, the human spirit that motivates these men and women. Thanks for sharing this.
