Story behind the song
In the mid 1990's I served in the Air Force, forward deployed in South Korea as tensions rose. I was proud to be a peacekeeper and deterrent to war. Now tensions are again rising and I wonder how it would feel to be back on Freedom's Front lines.

Hands off the trigger! C C Bm Am D Just pause to think. Consider the facts. Take a deep breath, before you react. C D Bm Em C Bm Am G No Fire! No fury! No threat of harm! Lets try to keep the morning calm intro, Instrumental Verse, Repeat Chorus Bridge Dm C Em D Tween frozen peaks and soaking rain a rose grew willfully Em D Am D Through Fire and earth, wind and sea, in peaceful harmony Verse 3 G Am Our missiles face north,Our eyes on the sky G D D7 Were ready to rollOur weapons near by C Bm In God we have faith,but lightly we sleep Am D D7 Its trusted to usthis peace we must keepChorus and coda)
