“All gave some.  Some gave all.”
Hear it playing in my mind, these words in a beautiful song.
It wasn’t his ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ with that silly dance we all knew.
This was heart felt, the words and meanings so clear.
Freedom isn’t free and some pay their life for liberty.
Every country has it problems they say, America isn’t lacking.
There’s so much going on, controversy, makes everyone feel tension.
Fact remains our brave men and women from years past to now.
As Billy Ray sings on, they stand guard protected our rights.94
Our rights to vote, right not to care, to protest for love.
