Soldier, Soldier

To hear the song, click the title above.

Music & Lyrics by Patrick Anderson

Charging through the Smoke
Jesse Jackson in London

.
Flag Burners

.



I don’t know how you do it
What keeps you in the game
How can you fight my battles
Don’t even know my name
Some people trash you brother
They have surrendered you
Standing Guard

.

Without your contribution
Their bills are overdue.


CHORUS
Soldier, soldier save the day
Wish there was another way
Stand your ground and face the foe
You’re what makes the freedom flow.



Lean on Me




I don’t know why you do it
Nobody pushed you in
Coffins of Heroes.

You rush into perdition
For someone else’s sin.
Some take your life for granted
While you defend their flag
They never seem to notice
Another body bag.



CHORUS
Leave Him Out

.

Soldier, Soldier, save my ass
(Your) bravery is unsurpassed
Taking bullets for your pay
Pray you live another day



Not His Battle
Grateful Veteran

.

I don’t know how to help you
Words can’t describe your pain
Yet you endure the battle
How can you not complain?
You risk annihilation
Each blast assaults your mind
Your limbs are blown to pieces
And still you get maligned

CHORUS
Soldier, soldier save us all
(Those) whiners need a wake up call
Don’t you wish that it was up to you
Who (the hell) you give the freedom to?.

Soldiers screamin' 'cross the desert

Pat Tillman
.
I don’t know who you are son
Why do you fight for me
Where do you find the courage
To keep a stranger free?
You are my action hero
No greater sacrifice
Will you survive the slaughter
Or must you pay the price?

CHORUS
Soldier, soldier save our butts
Thank you for your blood and guts
(You) die for me with no regret
How can I repay the debt?

Nick Zimmer~A Fallen Hero

With tears in my eyes I have read your tribute and it was awesome. Thankyou and I hope you don't mind I added a couple of pics of my soldier. He was in Iraq when these were taken and he was killed on memorial day 2004 in Kufa Iraq. He was a loader and a driver of an M1A1 Abrahms Tank and was proud to be an Iron Duke.

A SPACE OF TIME

There was a lifetime
Danny-Killed in Action .
lived in a space of time
In a blink you were born
and you lived; and you died.

I can still feel the ripples you caused
as your life sped by me
I don't quite believe your
gone from this life experience

I was so certain of the future
filled with you and the ones that
you would bring to this life
The ones that you would choose to love

I loved the chubbly little boy with
dancing green eyes and
a perpetual smile
The love of my life

I loved the young man
Danny 2-Killed in Action .

who was witty and funny
He could lighten the mood
bringing happiness to a dull day

I loved the soldier
brave and couragous
who fought for our freedom
I love my son
