Hallelujah - For Those Who Fight for Freedom

A Tribute to Veterans

for four voices (SATB a cappella)

My orders say we’re shippin’ out

We don’t have long now to talk about

    The hundred thousand ways I’m gonna’ miss ya’

When we told the kids I’d have to leave

Through tears, they tried to comfort me

    And my broken heart cried out a “Hallelujah!”

CHORUS: Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

My boots sink in the desert sand

And all I want is to hold your hand

    And kiss you like the day I whisper'd to ya’

But reminding me as I left the gate

You said, “Freedom’s call, it can never wait”

    And you’d be right there when I came back runnin’ to ya’


Yesterday, lost another friend

Gettin’ tired; it’s harder to defend

    These children in the streets that come up to ya’

Their arms stretched out in desp'rate need

And all I can do is fight and bleed

    And say a pray’r and a broken Hallelujah!


My darling, would you please sit down

And gather all the kids around?

    I got somethin’ that I really need to tell ya’

Daddy’s not gonna’ make it home;

I tried so hard, but your not alone,

    ‘Cause from way up here, I can see your Momma’s with ya’!


Alternate lyrics for verse four:

My darling, would you please sit down

And gather all the kids around?

    I got somethin’ that I really need to tell ya’

Sometimes you might feel alone, 

But please don't cry, 'cause I'm coming' home,

    And don't be afraid, 'cause you know I'm always with ya'!
