I am very blessed to be making a living doing what I love.... playing music! Whether musical directing a show, entertaining at a wedding or local retirement home, or writing songs, I know I'm doing what I was put here to do. My dream? To continue making music and making new friends along the way. And if some of those friends would include the likes of Garth or Faith well, that wouldn't be bad either! God has given me this gift, and I intend to use it for His glory........ where ever it takes me.

Mommy Soldier - Lyrics

Mommy Soldier

~ Dedicated to the Mothers serving in the U.S. Armed Forces ~


Now I lay you down to sleep
Pray the Lord your little soul to keep
Precious child
Your mom and dad we love you dear
It's so hard that we can't be together
To kiss you goodnight

You see, Mommy's a soldier and she's working far away
She protects your freedom, works hard to keep you safe
And I know you can't see her, but I'll make this solemn vow:
She's your mommy soldier and you're in her heart right now

I know you don't remember
Your first breath at your delivery
Gift from heaven
You've got her eyes, you've got her smile
It won't be long and one day you'll be dating
And breaking hearts

Sometimes it don't seem fair
The picture just ain't right
That I'm the one here with you
To say “I love you” every night

While Mommy's a soldier and she's working far away
She protects your freedom, works hard to keep you safe
And I know you can't see her, but I'll make this solemn vow:
She's your mommy soldier and you're in her heart right now

Don't grow up too fast
Just take your own sweet time
'Cause Mommy's missing memories and time is passing by

Because Mommy's a soldier and she's working far away
She protects your freedom, works hard to keep you safe
And I know you can't see her, but I'll make this solemn vow:
She's your mommy soldier and you're in her heart right now

Now I lay you down to sleep
Pray the Lord your little soul to keep
