21 GUNS (Fallen Soldier Song)

21 guns will sound today, 21 guns.
You can hear a mother pray, for her only son.

As they lay him down to rest,
In the evening sun.
Hope the whole world, will hear the sound,
Of the 21 guns.

Lord he didn’t want to go,
But duty called,
For his family and his country, yeah he’d give all.
A landmine in the sand, that wasn’t seen.
Took away his life and all of his dreams.

21 guns will sound today, 21 guns.
You can hear a mother pray, for her only son.

Mama didn’t take it quite so well,
To see her son was dead and blown to hell.
But she prayed salvation for her son,
As she cussed the day that the war begun.

21 guns will sound today, 21 guns.
You can hear a mother pray, for her only son.

As they wrapped him in the flag,
She knew his time was done.
Hope the world heard the sound,
Of the 21 guns

Hope the world heard the sound,
Of the 21 guns

To Seth and Family,
I just heard the news from a past buddy that found me on facebook and told me.  Its been 11
years since we were in college together at wilkes,nc  We had some great ping-pong matches
between class breaks!  You were the first to try to teach me to play my guitar and i still
remember the song you taught me from Pearl Jam.  You were a great roommate and friend!  
God Bless the Hildreth family!  Your son will not be forgotten.
