For Freedom

Somewhere a trumpet sounds in the night
A soldier is standing there
It's calling him out to the stars and the stripes
It's calling him God knows where

He kisses the ones he loves goodbye
And leaves in the dead of night
For freedom he'll heed the call
Leave all he knows
And for freedom he'll stand and fight

And somewhere a man and wife can't believe
They're waving their girl goodbye
For gone are the days of pigtails and curls
And candlelight lullabies

If they had their way she'd stay young forever
And never be far from home
But freedom has drawn her heart to danger's shore
And for freedom they'll let her go

And somewhere a thunderous crash in the night
It echoes all through the hills
Though many escape its wrath and its rage
A soldier lies wounded still

Remembering the land he loves he cries
"I've loved you with all my might
For freedom said I'm her son whatever comes
And for freedom I'll say goodbye"

And somewhere beneath the stars and the sky
Our flag is still standing there
She bled and she brought one land under God
Her colors still lead us there

She's carried the lives of those before us
She's buried the bold and brave
For freedom she holds our hopes
And hands up high
And for freedom she'll ever wave
