Lyrics
A Father's Father's Father [2021/05/26] [V] A father's father's father fought in the first war, seldom talked about it kept it locked behind closed doors. Their answering the call was the right thing for them to do, for us to have this life the horrors they fought through. [V] A father's father's father stormed that beach in '44, like their dads before them saw the tragedies of war. Brothers fell beside brothers, far away from home some fell together, others died alone. [C] Today would be their future, wonder what they'd say about how we're still killing like it's the only way. Bet they're rolling' over with fallen brothers on all sides. The stories of these fathers who lived and died. Break [V] A father's father's father fought in that forgotten war. Never talk about it can't relive it anymore. For those that were lucky, lucky to survive. Keep their nightmares hidden, from daughters, sons, and wives. [C] They lived into this future, wonder what to say about how we're still killing like it's the only way. Rest will one day find them when placed into the ground. May the peace these father's fought for be found. [Tag] As father's, wives, sons, and daughters fight now. Copyright 2021 By Douglas Murphy www.soundclick.com/dougmurphy doug_murphy6@sympatico.ca
