(DOC WALTZ)

Words and Music by Doc Waltz
Doc's great grandfather lived in the South, but left home as a teenager to fight for the North. His uncle Eddie served during WWII, and his dad served in Korea. Patriots Song is not only for his family, but all of his brothers and sisters who have served our country in uniform.
Patriots Song (Remembrance)

In one hand’s a rifle,
The other….his Bible,
It’s 18 and 62,
He’s only 16………
From the land called Tennessee,
But he’ll fight for the red, white and blue.


We’re still mending those fences,
And he’s a long ways from Texas,
In a fight called World War II
The battles’ horrific
Out here in the Pacific,
Defending the red, white and blue.

(CHORUS)
So I raise up my voice,
Sing a Patriots Song.
And remember the good and the few,
Who fought in the wars,
So we all could have peace,
And live in the red, white, and blue.

(Instrumental Break)

From Heartbreak Ridge,
To Pork Chop Hill,
Daddy did what he had to do.
Then in 1969,
I followed that line,
And fought for the red, white, and blue.

(CHORUS)
So let’s raise up our voice,
Sing a Patriots Song.
And remember the good and the few,
Who fought in the wars,
So we all could have peace,
And live in the red, white, and blue.

We fought for the red, white, and blue.

Long live…………….. the red, white, and blue.
