John Rich – The Good Lord And The Man lyrics
Well he was one of the millions
Who signed up to defend us
Long ago in 1941
When they sucker punched us in Pearl Harbor
He fought under Macarthur seventeen with an army Thompson gun

Well he stormed a lot of beaches slept in jungles with the leaches
He saw things young man should never see
And when they shot him in the shoulder
He got back up and he marched over
Left a lot of brothers dead in kawagalie

If it wasn't for the good lord and the man
There wouldn't be a breath of freedom in this land
And I see people on my T. V. Taking shots at uncle Sam
I hope they always remember why they can
Cause we'd all be speakin' German livin' under the flag of Japan
If it wasn't for the good lord and the man
If it wasn't for the good lord and the man

Well I'm the grandson of a soldier and I'd fight the whole world over
If duty called and freedoms on the line
But thanks to the greatest generation and the ones still fighting for our nation
I've never had to kill for my way of life

If it wasn't for the good lord and the man
There wouldn't be a breath of freedom in this land
And I see people on my T. V. Taking shots at uncle Sam
I hope they always remember why they can
Cause we'd all be speakin' German livin' under flag of Japan
If it wasn't for the good lord and the man

If it wasn't for the good lord and the man
There wouldn't be a breath of freedom in this land
And I see people on my T. V. Taking shots at uncle Sam
I hope they always remember why they can
Cause we'd all be speakin' German livin' under flag of Japan
If it wasn't for the good lord and the man
If it wasn't for the good lord and the man
