SOME HAVE CROSSED THE BAR
We were born and raised on Chincoteague
among a people - proud and free
until one day we three were called
to fight a war - far across the sea.
We knew we had to defend our land
so that freedom would always be
thank god we stayed together
Richard, Archie and Me.
When World War Two was over
some stayed on to fight again
the Korean War and Viet Nam
were wars we could not win.
Time seems to erase old memories
two of the Vets have crossed the bar
they will rest in peace forever
in a land that knows no war.
