Lyrics

LINK (Jon D'Agostino, Tim Maggart, Micah Bennett)


VERSE
It was Independence Day
Grandpa sits Jimmy on his knee
Time to tell the story of that day at Normandy
When he was ambushed, wounded, lying helpless in the sand
And through the smoke, he felt the grip, of his buddy's hand

Then step by step, arm in arm
They made it to that wall
Like brothers who still raise a beer to
Dodging that close call

Talkin' bout' a link,
In the chain of freedom
Takin' bout' a bond
Of sacrifice and hope
That's a mother's son
Fighting for his country
Praying to god he makes it home
Talkin' bout a link

In the Spring of '69, Jimmy's dad was just nineteen
Uncle Sam, picked his name, from a lottery
And sent him packing, traveling
Half way round' the globe
A warrior in a jungle
Filled with frightened souls

Then step by step, arm in arm
They made it through that brush
Like brothers who returned to walk as
heroes among us

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Now there's a blue sky over Georgia, where airborne rangers train
And there goes Jimmy walking, tall and proud, gonna earn his wings today

Talkin' bout' a link,
In the chain of freedom
Takin' bout' a bond
Of sacrifice and hope
That's a mother's son
Fighting for OUR country
Praying to god he makes it home
Talkin' bout a link
