Song Description

A song for our times about the loss of family members in war and the role of our faith.

Story Behind the Song

Ken Morrison writes: My father signed up for WWII with other boys from school. My Father-in-Law fought in the Pacific and was the only one to return from a suicide mission (Thank God he did). I have seen so many sent to fight and attended my share of military funerals. My heart goes out to all families with ties to the military.

Lyrics

THAT?S WHAT HE DID
Words and Music by Ken Morrison and Richard Schilling (12/02&3/03 & 4/18)
Copyright 2003 by Kenneth L. Morrison

VERSE
My Dad was just a boy when he signed up to go and fight
The war had hardly started, but he was one to do things right
He loved his home and country and he loved the
simple life where he lived

VERSE
He gave a hug to Grandpa and he kissed his Mama bye
He went off to be a soldier and he learned a battle cry
He took his stand with others and Death?s angel took his friend but passed him by
Oh, thank God he lived

PRECHORUS
He said a simple prayer and he gave of his life
That?s what he did

CHORUS
Well, I know that God in heaven understands this more than most
He?s seen his share of pain, lost a child like other folks
He knows the price of freedom and he paid it with his
loss to give us hope
So we may live
Now we walk with one who died for he gave of his life
That?s what he did

VERSE
Another time, another town, another boy with a soldier?s face
This time a kid from down the street stood up to set the pace
His uniform was starched and pressed when we laid him in his final resting place near where we lived

PRECHORUS
And we said a simple prayer for he gave of his life
That?s what he did

CHORUS
Well, I know that God in heaven understands this more than most
He?s seen his share of pain, lost a child like other folks
He knows the price of freedom and he paid it with his
loss to give us hope
So we may live
Now we walk with one who died for he gave of his life
That?s what he did

VERSE
Well I was just a boy when my Dad went back to fight
And I tried to stand my tallest when we went to meet his flight
We brought his body home and I think about him every single night
And how he lived
And I said a simple prayer for he gave with his life
That?s what he did
That?s what he did
