That’s What Some Folks Do

I remember, when my Daddy died
That 21 Gun Salute
Marines foldin’ the flag while momma cried
There was nothing’ else poor momma could do
She followed that man for 30 years
Waycross to Timbuktu
He gave his all for God and Country
‘Cause that’s what some folks do …

Yeah that’s what some folks do
So folks like me and you
Can live these lives of quiet pleasure
In time that frighten us all they answer the call
They’re our nations most valuable treasure
Some people say “it ain’t cool”
To wave the Red, White and Blue but I thank God
That’s what some folks do …

I’ll never forget the day America cried
When terror came crashin’ out of the blue
We all sat and stared at the TV in shock
There was really nothing’ else that we could do
But some of us were drawn like moth to those flames
Men and women with hearts beating true
They went runnin’ in to help those tryin’ to get out
‘Cause that’s what some folks do …

Yeah that’s what some folks do
So folks like me and you
Can live these lives of quiet pleasure
In time that frighten us all they answer the call
They’re our nations most valuable treasure
Some people say “it ain’t cool”
To wave the Red, White and Blue but I thank God
That’s what some folks do …
