The Statler Brothers – More Than A Name On A Wall lyrics

I saw her from a distance
As she walked up to the wall
In her hand she held some flowers
As her tears began to fall
And she took out pen and paper
As to trace her memories
And she looked up to heaven
And the words she said were these...

She said Lord my boy was special,
And he meant so much to me
And Oh I'd love to see him
Just one more time you see
All I have are the memories
And the moments to recall

So Lord could you tell him,
He's more than a name on a wall..

She said he really missed the family
And being home on Christmas day
And he died for God and Country
In a place so far away

I remember just a little boy
Playing war since he was three
But Lord this time I know,
He's not coming home to me

And she said Lord my boy was special,
And he meant so much to me
And Oh I'd love to see him
But I know it just can't be
So I thank you for my memories
And the moments to recall

But Lord could you tell him,
He's more than a name on a wall..

Lord could you tell him,
He's more than a name on a wall..

    As Memorial Day passes each year we think of our loved ones "who died for God and Country". It is important to think of the fallen and to thank those who protect our Freedom every day of the year. It brings a tear to my eyes and a lump in my throat as I think of the things we take for granted and the piddly little things here at home that separate our own country. Step back and remember the important things in life! God Bless The USA!
