Tribute To Our Heroes 388: Small Towns

Small town boys have heroes and toys

And some become the former.

They have inside them

Their country’s rhythm

Through love that beats inside ‘em.

 

Small town boys leave behind their toys

To serve their country’s calling.

They enlist as a group,

A small town soup;

Town says bye to whole troop.

 

Small town boys leave behind their joys

Things they love and make ‘em smile.

Moms and pops,

And cars that drop

Zero to eighty when clutch is pop’d.

 

Small town men who left town as boys

Oft’ return changed beyond recognition.

They’ve served with pride,

Lost friends who’ve died;

Small town manners their soul’s guide.

 

Small towns across this land so great

Contribute to our country’s well being.

Not just in food,

But in the good

Their principles rarely withstood.

 

Southern small towns thank you for the boys

Who serve us all so well.

Serving country and GOD,

Service their grandfathers trod,

And for that we gratefully applaud.
