 50,000 NAMES CARVED IN THE WALL
words and music by Jamie O'Hara

l
There's teddy bears and high school rings,
And old photographs that mamas bring,
And daddies with their young boys playing ball.      
There's combat boots - he used to wear,
When he was sent over there,
And 50,000 names carved in THE WALL.

There's cigarettes and cans of beer,
And notes that say "I miss you dear,"
And children who dont say anything at all,
Purple hearts and packs of gum,
Fatherless daughters and fatherless sons,
And there's 50,000 names carved in THE WALL.       

They come from all across this land,
In pickup trucks and mini-vans,
Searching for a boy from long ago.
They scan the wall and find his name,
Teardrops fall like pouring rain,
And silently they they leave their gift and go.

There's stars of David and rosary beads,
And crucifixion figurines,
And flowers of all colors large and small.
There's boy scout badges and merit pins,
Little American flags waving in the wind,
And there's 5,000 names carved in THE WALL.


 Some Gave All
Billy Ray Cyrus

I knew a man, called him Sandy Cane.
Few folks even knew his name.
But a hero, yes was he.
Left a boy, came back a man.
Still many just don't understand
about the reasons we are free.
I can't forget the look in his eyes
or the tears he cried,
as he said these words to me.

All gave some and some gave all.
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.

Now, Sandy Cane is no longer here.
But his words are oh so clear
as they echo throughout our land.
and all his friends who gave us all,
who stood the ground and took the fall
to help their fellow man.
Love your country and live with pride
and don't forget those who died.
America, can't you see

All gave some and some gave all.
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.

And if you ever think of me
think of all your liberties, and recall, yes recall
some gave all.
Some gave all.



 Proud to be an American

  If tomorrow all the things were gone
I worked for all my life,
and I had to start  again with just my children and my  wife.
I'd thank my luck stars to be living here today
where the flag still stands for freedom, and they can't take that away

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
and I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me
and I'd gladly stand up
next to toy and defend her
still today,
Cause theire ain't no doubt I love this land      
God Bless the USA

From the lakes of minnesota, to the hill's of teneessee
across the plains of Texas from sea to shing sea
From Detroit down to Huston
from New York to LA
well there's pride
in every American heart and it's time we stand and say

That I'm proud to be an american where at least I know I'm free
and I won't forget the men who died who gave that
right to me and I'd gladly stand up
next to you and defend her still today
acuse there ain't no doubt, I love this land
GOD BLESS THE USA




 The Ballad of The Green Berets

Fighting soldiers from the sky,
Fearless men who jump and die.
Men who mean just what they say,
The brave men of The Green Beret.
Silver wings upon their chests,
These are men, America's best,
One hundred men we'll test today,But only three win The GreenBeret.              

Trained to live off nature's land,
Train  ed in combat, hand to hand.
Men who fight by night and day,
Courage take from The Green Beret      

Silver wings upon their chests,
These are men, America's best,
One hundred men we'll test today,
But only three win The Green Beret.

Back at home a young wife waits,
Her Green Beret has met his fate.
He has died for those oppressed.
Leaving her this last request.
Put silver wings on my son's chest,
Make him one of America's best,
He'll be a man they'll test one day,
Have him win The Green Beret.








 Still in Siagon
words and music by Charlie Daniels

Got on a plane in 'Frisco
And got off in Vietnam
I walked into a different world
The past forever gone

I could have gone to Candaa
Or I could have stayed in school
But I was brought up differently
I couldn't break the rules

Thirteen months and fifteen days
The last ones were the worst
One minute I'd kneel down and pray
And the next I'd stand and curse

No place to run to
Where I did not feel that war
When I got home I stayed alone
And checked behind each door

Cuz I'm still in Saigon
Still in Saigon
I am still in Saigon
In my mind

The ground at home was covered in snow
And I was covered in sweat
My younger brother calls me a killer
And my daddy calls me a vet

Everybody says I'm someone else
And I'm sick and there's no cure
Damned if I know who I am
There was only one place I was sure

When i was still in Saigon
Still in saigon
I am still in saigon
In my mind

Every summer when it rains
I smell the jungle, I hear the planes
I can't tell no one, I feel ashamed
I pray some day I'll go insane

That's been ten long years ago
And time has gone on by
Now and then I catch myself
Eyes searching through the sky

All the sounds of long ago
Will be forever in my head
Mingled with the wounded cries
And the silence of the dead

'Cuz I'm still in Saigon
Still in Saigon
I am still in Saigon
In my mind

oldiers from the sky,
Fearless men who jump and die.
Men who mean just what they say,
The brave men of The Green Beret.
Silver wings upon their chests,
These are men, America's best,
One hundred men we'll test today,
But only three win The GreenBeret.
Trained to live off nature's land,
Trained in combat, hand to hand.
Men who fight by night and day,
Courage take from The Green Beret.
Silver wings upon their chests,
These are men, America's best,
One hundred men we'll test today,
But only three win The Green Beret.
Back at home a young wife waits,
Her Green Beret has met his fate.
He has died for those oppressed.
Leaving her this last request.
Put silver wings on my son's chest,
Make him one of America's best,
He'll be a man they'll test one day,
Have him win The Green Beret.
