Old Generals


You fought and served,
this country well.
You won us our independence.
You put it in writing,
and signed your names,
and made it a declaration,
but the most selfless act you have done,
was after the war was won.
You gave up your positions of power,
so that our government could be run.
So while our country,
was being built,
you stood back and did not make a sound.
Now on Memorial Day,
we can remember,
how this country was really found.

so here we stand in total awe
as our politicians has taken it all
while we all take the fall
new world order is on it`s way
while we celebrate memorial day

You've fought with might
Too save many life's
The world is yours
For everything you've done right
U made have gave up and gave in
Too change the world that had to end
We never wanted change but the damage is done
Memorial day all in one

Tombstones pearly white
Heel toe plant the colors
Ore rolling hills out of sight
Gunpowder dreams gone a flutter
This for you my better brother
