For those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Something To Die For

A song written back in 2009 and posted here in the past. 100% BB/RB tracks.


Dedicated to all the Veterans on this day of remembrance.




Me and my big brother, after church on Sunday
Out in Granny's backyard, playing Army green beret.
Climbing in the old oak tree, The smell of supper on the breeze
Music drifting through the door...
That's something to die for

Me & Jeannie Farmer, walking down to Skalseys Creek
An old dirt road to a swimming hole, in the Carolina heat.
Laughing in the warm night air, she lets down her long brown hair..
She's more than just the girl next door..... I swear...
That's something to die for

Country, God and family, these things I believe
Are the things in life worth living for
Country, God and family, what it takes to keep them free
Makes everything I do worth fighting for
That's something to die for

solo (8 bars)

Me and my sweet Jeannie after church on Sunday
Out in Grannys backyard as our little children play
Memories made forever of one more day together
Before I leave again .......for war
Thats something to die for

Bridge:
Far away, in a foreign land, A blinding flash in the desert sand.
My dreams are gone, like fading tracks...
Erased by the wind...

Chorus
Tag
That's something I died for.

Hi Herb,

After seeing the title of this song, I had to listen. I was diagnosed with cancer recently and had major surgery on Monday. According to my surgeon, I probably won't be dying anytime soon! They think they got it all. But, they're keeping me in this danged hospital bed until Friday or Saturday

It's a great song. Totally loved it. And if that ain't country, I don't know what is! And what a powerful chorus! I listened to it several times and couldn't think of a single thing that would make it better. Congrats on a well-written, well-produced and well-performed song. A tip of the hat and heart-felt salute from a Vietnam vet and Army retiree.

Wishing you the very best.

Alan

We hadn't heard this one before. We agree with Tom.
Glad we've heard it now, it's beautiful.

Always enjoy this nice tribute. Mine and Janice's fathers were
both in WWII -- hers in the Pacific and mine in the Atlantic. We
immensely appreciate all veterans' sacrifices. They made
everything possible that we continue to enjoy to this day.

Thanks for re-posting this Herb. Yes, it's one that needs revisiting from time to time.

Great lyrics and full country sound. And Very poignant.

I remember this one too. Good song and a great tribute. My Uncle that lived next door to me here on the farm had the distinction during WWII of having the most siblings in our county to serve in the service in the war. Six brothers and a sister all served and somehow, all made it through. Another uncle was shot down twice and was captured near the end of the war.

Herb this is my first time listening and I really like the different things you used to "die for". The ending was sad and unfortunately there are so many who did "die for". Great song and even though I wasn't around to hear it the first time I am glad that you brought it out again.
