Story behind the song
A few years ago before they cracked down on panhandlers in our city, I used to see a lot of Homeless Vets with Signs asking for money and food. Some had no legs some with one arm. So I decided to write this song wich was written in the late 90's for and about them. All the Proceeds from this song will go to Wounded and Homeless Veteran causes. You can help donate to the cause by purchasing this song on Musicnet, Itunes and others. These guys served their country and shouldn't have to be holding signs in the streets begging!
Lyrics
A lonely man wakes up from shelter, the stench of trash, a chill in his knees Around his neck a badge of honor, the lives he saved, a man of good deed Can't kick the sounds of men in pain He drowns it out with sleet and rain Forgotten heroes of yesterday, folks shun them like their deranged The sign says "God bless yes I'm in need" truthful's tell ya "Just beer please" Have you been down? I just wana' know You've seen them round, Forgotten Heroes She's perched upon her favorite bench site, a place to feel the fresh ocean air She flashes back to visions of war time, the wounded children put in her care She can't forget, the flash of light The cannon fire that took her sight Forgotten heroes of yesterday, folks shun them like their deranged The sign says "God bless yes I'm in need" truthful's tell ya "Just beer please" Have you been down? I just wana' know You've seen them round, Forgotten Heroes We're all just voyagers here that travel different streams Some hit the falls, others make it to the sea Forgotten Heroes
