Written and performed by Linda & Greg Lewis. Copyright 2015, BMI.

Verse 1:

Time is passing quickly. And your days on earth are few.

And so wanted to tell you how proud we are to have lived these days with you.

Verse 2:

It’s because of your generation, that we have the freedoms, we do.

So before you leave this earth, we want to say to you…..

Chorus:

Thank you for all you did to keep our country free.

Our flag still flies over this great land, for the rest of the world to see.

It’s because of your bravery and the sacrifice you’ve made.

Some of you have already left; the ultimate price was paid.

Verse 3:

So before you leave this earth, we salute you one and all.

Soon you will be leaving us, when you hear that last roll call.

Solo….

Chorus:

Thank you for all you did to keep our country free.

Our flag still flies over this great land, for the rest of the world to see.

It’s because of your bravery and the sacrifice you’ve made.

Some of you have already left; the ultimate price was paid.

Verse 4:

So before you leave this earth, we salute you one and all.

Soon you will be leaving us, when you hear that last roll call.

We thank you…...
