An Eagle Cries
Written by Kenny Ray Horton

Verse 1
I am PFC Bohannon
Devil Dog down to the core
A figment of your imagination,
I?m a man who lives no more
I died cause I stood proudly
For the Stars and Stripes
In the mountains of Afghanistan
Late one fateful night
I leave behind my family
Tears rolling down their face
In Miramar, California -
God what a gorgeous place
Though I hate to say this,
That?s how my story ends
But they say with each life ending,
Another one begins

I may be gone but I won?t be forgot
They?ll don my grave with forget-me-nots
Yes I know, I?ve seen my last sunrise
But I?ve been told that when a soldier dies
An eagle cries

Verse 2
My name is Sgt. Calloway
I hail from Wichita
I volunteered for the Army
Like my dad and my grandpa
I died one Tuesday morning
By a German soldier?s gun
They say I lost that battle
But I heard the war was won
We were just outside of Bastone
In an old abandoned farm
I was patching up James Coulter
He took a bad one in the arm
I knew he was right behind me
When I looked in Coulters eyes
And the last thing that I thought of
Was my children and my wife


Verse 3
My name is Michael Westerman
And I was laid to rest
Back in 1941
The Japanese put us to the test
U.S.S Arizona
She took an awful hit
I felt the huge explosion
We listed port and that was it
I heard a bandsman keep on singing
As we hit the ocean floor
I was stuck in a flooding cabin,
I couldn?t budge the P-way door
I glanced out the porthole
At the God-forsaken sight
Then my whole world faded black,
Even darker than the night
