ANSWER THE CALL
2007 Bonnie W. Daniels

Dear Joey,
Youre lying in your little bed,
Im writing as you sleep,
I think about me leaving you,
And tears roll down my cheeks,
But, I have to go my little son,
My country called my name,
And Im willing to give my all,
For your sake.........I must answer the call.

CHORUS:
He answered the call,
He fought to keep us free,
He made the sacrifice,
And gave his life for you and me,
He needed us to lend a hand,
To help to raise his little man,
He paid the price, he gave his all,
Knowing America.......Would answer the call.

Joey grew to be a man,
His mom knew the time was right,
To give him the letter shed saved so long,
That his dad had written that night,
His eyes filled up as he read the words,
And tears rolled down his cheeks,
He knew in his heart, hed stand tall,
Like his dad........ He must answer the call.

CHORUS:
He answered the call,
He fought to keep us free,
He paid a heavy price,
Now he needs you and he needs me,
To give a hand where there is no hand,
To give him feet so he can stand,
He is a hero, he stood tall,
He needs America........To answer the call.

Bridge:
We owe a debt that we must pay,
To help our wounded on their way,
They gave so much, can we do less,
Than give each one our very best

CHORUS:
They answered the call,
They fought to keep us free,
They paid a heavy price,
Now they need you and they need me,
To give a hand where there is no hand,
To give them feet so they can stand,
Theyre our heroes, they stood tall,
They need America .......to answer the call
Answer the call...............Answer the call
