There is a simple truth throughout the USA
When our troops die in battle
Few care a Hero has passed away
Its a very common thing
That happens on too many days
Almost no one gives a second thought
When a Hero passes away
We drink and pursue our fondest desires
and celebrate another birthday
Yet, very few care, his have been taken away
The funerals are sad affairs the families gather on bleak days
There may even be protesters spouting in their vile ways
The Patriot Guard gathers to defend and to say
"I'm sorry for your loss on this most tragic of days."
Yet, every 30 minutes another Hero passes each day
Perhaps an unknown Veteran who's age seems to say
"I was the only one left and on this my last day
Thank God, someone cried and the flags flew today."
Tragically, many choose a harsher way.
They take their lives, their hopes and dreams away.
Twenty two, pass in review, each and every day
We ride and ride, and all of us pray
"We will ride until the Patriot Guard rides on our last day"
