Remember the Day

This is the first single from my upcoming Rock / Blues album that drops on Aug 20th. On it I've composed 11 songs but I'm using 7 different singers. It's quite a variety. All are pros and really gave great performances. This particular song is about my cousin Paul who was sent to Iraq in 2004 to train the Iraqi soldiers. He was killed by a suicide bomber. To this day when I hear the national anthem played I think of him. I also think of 9/11 as it was the day that changed our family forever because it was the beginning of the chain of events leading up to him having to go to Iraq.

 

I remember posting with all of you on the 101 back in 2016. I had no clue what I was doing. I think I've come pretty far since then with this (part time hobby of mine)! You all were so very helpful to me when I was starting out. Thank you for your feedback it's always much appreciated.

 

 

Remember the Day - Lyric Video

 

Music / Lyrics: John Evans

Vocals: Christian Erik

Fiddle - Ross O Brown

 

 

Left my wife at home
Her and the dogs are all alone
Got the call to fight, can't wait for the daylight, I'm leaving tonight.

 

When the anthem's played, remember the day
I went to be a part of the war brigade
So stand, be proud, and sing aloud
For the boy who died from this small town

 

In a foreign land
Where the view is all dirt and sand
Sent to train a team, to be lean, to be mean, to fight an enemy unseen

 

When the anthem's played, remember the day
I went to be a part of the war brigade
So stand, be proud, and sing aloud
For the boy who died from this small town

 

When the flag is raised, remember the day
The towers fell into a cloud of grey
So stand, be proud, and show this crowd
That the red, white, and blue will never back down

 

Bridge - Fiddle & Guitar Solo

 

When the anthem's played, remember the day
I went to be a part of the war brigade
So stand, be proud, and sing aloud
For the boy who died from this small town
So stand, be proud, and show this crowd
That the red, white, and blue will never back down

Great song and performance. The singer does a really good job, but any singer runs the risk of being upstaged by your guitar playing 🙂 It's more melodic than most of what I've heard from you previously and makes a great rock song. The lyric really hits home. I know that the small town where I live and those round about could tell the same story.

John . . . very much respect for this song, and the way you've presented it in the video, and it's also very well recorded (and sung)

Thank you for posting, I was moved by it.
