We walked among the crossesWhere our fallen soldiers lay.And listened to the bugleAs TAPS began to play.The Chaplin led a prayerWe stood with heads bowed low.And I thought of fallen comradesI had known so long ago.They came from every cityAcross this fertile land.That we might live in freedom.They lie here 'neath the sand.I felt a little guiltyMy sacrifice was small.I only lost a little timeBut these men lost their all.Now the services are overFor this Memorial Day.To the names upon these crossesI just want to say,Thanks for what you've givenNo one could ask for more.May you rest with God in heavenFrom now through evermore.
