Lyrics

Say A Prayer

He was eighteen years old when his number was called
and he went off to fight in some foreign land
and he never knew that the price he would pay
was to never know peace again.
So say a prayer for the Red White and Blue
you know she needs all our help to get through
it seems like she's more than a little confused
say a prayer for the Red White and Blue

Now there's anger and hatred out in the streets
and this mountain of broken up dream
it seems we all could use just a little relief
and a way to get back to some peace

So say a prayer for the Red White and Blue
you know she needs all our help to get through
it seems like she's more than a little confused
say a prayer for the Red White and Blue

Now I love this country with all of my soul
I like her beauty, her vision, her dreams
and how we got here I really don't know
it's like a wound that we just can't heal
So say a prayer for the Red White and Blue
you know she needs all our help to get through
it seems like she's more than a little confused
so say a prayer for the Red White and Blue
