Lyrics

"Red, White & Blue"

Written By: Mark MacTaggart

high school came
and it was gone so fast
we knew those good times
were never gunna last
man our friendship
never seemed so close
untill that day
you had to go

i went off to college
but you went off to war
we were just kids
thrown into the world

you put your life on hold for now
to make your country proud
your the strongest man that i know
fightin' for your right to call this home
nothin' was ever gunna change your mind
you set out to do what you thought was right
no matter what happened, or what you had to do
you were proud to serve for, the red white and blue

i had no choice
but to go on with my life
met a girl in college
whose soon to be my wife
your letters came
and we talked on the phone
it was never the same
as havin you home

but you had made a commintment
a promise you couldnt break
fightin' for our freedom
so we could all can be safe

you put your life on hold for now
to make your country proud
your the strongest man that i know
fightin' for your right to call this home
nothin' was ever gunna change your mind
you set out to do what you thought was right
no matter what happened, or what you had to do
you were proud to serve for, the red white and blue

there was a knock at the door
it was a soldier dressed in blue
he said "i represent the core ma'am,
but i have some bad news

he put his life on hold
and he made us proud
the strongest soldier ive ever known
fightin' for his right to call this home
nothin' could ever change his mind
he set and did what was right
no matter what happened, or what he had to do
we are are proud that he served for, the red white and blue"
