Some Gave All


A hero, yes, was he

Left a boy, came back a man

Still many just don’t understand

About the reasons that we are free

I can’t forget the look in his eyes

Or the tears he cries

As he said these words to me

“All gave some and some gave all

And some stood through for the red, white and blue

And some had to fall

And if you ever think of me

Think of all your liberties and recall

Some gave all”
