This is amazing. I love this song. I was born in 1961 and was aware of the war as a child. It was a big world lesson for a little mind that if you were a young guy you would be forced to fight and die in a country on the other side of the world, and I saw this on the same tv I saw the GI Joe doll ads aimed at little boys. Later as a teen I had the vision of the guys on stage thrashing out the rock & roll and punk, the living spirits of the dead boys, armed with guitars and drums and skill and rage. Thanks for writing this song. It has a fine groove.

This is a Rick babb song. I seem to like it more than some of the people I've played it for but I think it just wasn't quiet enough for them to really hear this. Maybe others haven't been to this place. What a nice thot. (C)2011 Royal T Music

A song that Rick Babb started and I finished. He brought me the first verse and the chorus and the music. I finished it. (C)( 2011 Royal T Music

HEY! I just had a GREAT idea! Hey… SAM THE LION… hey, you guys… hey, you, SAM THE LION guys… I watched the video of you guys doing your set of JMT songs… you had JMT on stage with you… (LOVED IT!) How about this… DO THIS SONG !! And have BOTH JMT and Rick Babb on stage with you! Maybe also do “Quiet Tonight” ??? Hmmm… start strong with HCLonely and then go softer with QT ??? Or… maybe start soft with QT and then break out strong with HCL ??? Hmmm… which way… which way… What a nice decision to have to make! BUT MAY I SUGGEST… do them… either, both, or all of them… as SAM THE LION songs! Do NOT simply “cover” the Babb/Taylor versions… own the songs. (that is… “own the songs” period… end of sentence!) I watched you SAM THE LION guys play on that “Songs of JMT” video… and after watching it, it is my firm belief… you guys can “own” any damn song you want!
