Most Beautiful Song

Kris always introduced this song as “a love song from a soldier to an old girlfriend.”  Brilliant!  This is what “make America great again” should mean. And there was never a time where we need this reminder as much as we do now. I want to be proud of my country again, not ashamed that we don’t do the right thing. Kris said it best…”you were such a pretty dream, as I remember…”…this is a track from either Third World Warrior or Repossessed, I forget which. But if you like these lyrics (the music is incredible too), check out both CDs, can’t go wrong with either one. Unless of course you like your music all fluffy.  😉

Anthem ’84 by Kris Kristofferson

If you’re looking for a fighter who’ll defend you
And love you for your freedom. I’m your man.
And I ain’t gonna leave you for the crazy things you’re doing
But don’t ask me to lend a helping hand.
You were such a pretty dream as I remember
You were young and strong and God was on your side.
But vision slowly faded like the wonder from your eyes
And you traded your compassion for your pride.

But I still believe in all that we believed in.
And I pray to God that you will in the end.
And you’ll see the golden chances that you’re wasting.
And be the loving beauty that you can.
But I still believe in all that we believed in.
And I pray to God that you will in the end.
And you’ll see the golden chances that you’re wasting.
And be the loving beauty that you can.
