Those Fields Of Cannon

The guns are now silent but the fields tell the story
Of our American heritage - that long march to glory
The valleys are now peaceful where the brave gave their all
To give birth to a nation and a meaning to their call

Lord, it's sad to me the price they paid for liberty
They shared your creed but here they followed a different need
And those fields were crimson red with the dying and the dead
Then with flags at half mast, we turned a page upon our past
