Lyrics

Red, White and Blue Heart (For Pat Tillman)

There’s a blood pool in the sand
Where you can see God’s reflection
From the veins of a good man
Who was fighting world aggression

In a violent holy land
He was called to take a stand
With a conscience filled with pride…

Chorus:
Well you should have seen him run
In the Arizona hot sun
With a freedom in his hair
He heard a trumpet somewhere
When a New York minute came
A higher purpose called his name
‘Cause you have to do your part…
When you’ve got a Red, White and Blue Heart.

There are times when you gotta go
There a times when you gotta fall
You could leave it for someone else
Or you could rise up when duty calls

There’s a light behind the eyes
Where the soul of the brave resides
It’s a fire you can’t put out

Chorus
Well you should have seen him run
In the Arizona hot sun
With a freedom in his hair
He heard a trumpet somewhere


With a rising cloud of smoke
The sleeping hero inside awoke
‘Cause you have to do your part…
When you’ve got a Red, White and Blue Heart.

I remember sittin’ way up high
Way up on my daddy’s shoulders
Wavin’ flags as the p’rade went by
I’d salute the passing soldiers
Man it seems so long ago,
But I still take the time to go
Now I proudly wear a “forty” on my shirt…

Chorus:
Well you should have seen him run
In the Arizona hot sun
With a freedom in his hair
May his spirit always be there
In the anthem that you sing
Sing it loud and let it ring
‘Cause you have to do your part…
When you’ve got a Red, White and Blue Heart.
