    Hero’s End Vs 1 They gave all ---- to keep us free Blood sweat and tears for liberty Their watchwords were: “Protect – Defend.” In war and peace ---- these brave were sent Chorus They’re not the kind to brag and boast about their deeds And they have earned the right to live with dignity, Until they go where comrades wait around the bend In the fading mist ---- at hero’s end Vs 2 In desert heat ---- where waters chill Above the clouds, on shell-scared hills Old glory waved for all to see The Stars and Stripes of liberty Bridge Just average Joes and Janes who stood for freedom’s truth From every race – all Red, White and Blue Americans through thick and thin Heroes deserve a hero’s end Repeat Chorus End They’ll all fall in as in those days of old, And answer “here” when their names are called from heaven’s roll Standing --- at ease with hero friends In the fading mist ---- at hero’s end By Russ Pruitt & Ken Taylor; © 2008: Pruitt/Taylor; 1047 Kinneys Lane, Portsmouth, OH 45662; 740-464-9033 (cell);
