Song Description

Does anybody really know what we are fighting for? Are we destined to continue fighting with everyone through every generation? Why can't we change the way things are settled? Why war?

Story Behind the Song

A wedding was planned for a friend of our family. The groom was in the Marines, and he was deployed to Iraq two weeks before his wedding.

Lyrics

(1)
Washington has all the names in a row
People come from miles around just to view
The name of someone that they knew
I hear the names as I walk by
I see the faces beneath the sky
The cold wind drifts around the snow
Do not forget, do not forget
They did it for their country

Is it for peace or is it for greed
It's so easy to make 'em go
Is it for peace or it is for greed
It's so easy....

(2)
Was not long ago he was just a boy
Last night he got orders to deploy
His bride is crying in her room
The wedding plans were made too soon
Now she can see him on TV
As he sends greetings to her and me
Do not forget, do not forget
He did it for his country


Is it for peace or is it for greed
It's so easy to make 'em go
Is it for peace or is it for greed
It's so easy to make 'em go

Is it for peace or is it for greed
