“While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. ”

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.

Sammy Kershaw – The Snow White Rows of Arlington

There are a lot of perfect reasons
To never fight another war
There are a lot of perfect questions
As to what’s worth fighting for
There are a lot of perfect fools
Who refuse to read the writing on the wall

But the truth is there are people
Who’ve made it crystal clear
That it is their holy mission
To destroy all we hold dear

They are visibly out searching for the fire
To make this towing nation fall

Now we can just sit back and wait
Until they spill more precious blood
Or we can seek these cowards out
And nip their slaughter in the bud

Audios sweet home and family
I’m off to fight a war that must be won
You’ll know why I’m going when you see
The snow white rows of Arlington

Every blade of grass is sacred
Every headstone is a shrine
To somebody who was willing
To put existence on the line

The liberty we take for granted
Was purchased with their patriotic lives

Are their sleeping spirits restless?
Do they listen for the sound?
Of the mustering of armies
To defend their hallowed ground?

Will we rise to the occasion
To ensure their legacy survives?

Through the willows blow soft breezes
They are whispering my name

Asking did they die for nothing?
Aren’t I the keeper of the flame?

Audios sweet home and family
Wave goodbye to your Louisiana son

You will know why I’m leaving when you see
The snow white rows of Arlington

Audios sweet home and family
Wave goodbye to your Louisiana son
And if it be my fate you’ll find me
Proudly sleeping in the snow white,
When you see the snow white rows of Arlington

There are a lot of perfect reasons
To never fight another war
There are a lot of perfect questions
