Green, Red, White, and Blue (Original Song)

((Verse 1))

Everybody knew

You bled red, white, and blue

You were dad, grandpa, and chief

And of you it is believed

Your greatest joy in life

Was to be with your wife

Friends, kids, and grandkids too

That’s how we’ll remember you

[Chorus]

Rest in peace

Naval chief

Favorite teacher

Rest in peace, Sir

And we will remember you

Bleeding green, red, white, and blue

((Verse 2))

Everyone could see

You bled dark amber green

It was your great pride and joy

To teach high school girls and boys

Not just lessons in school

But that respect is cool

So, yes sir, we will show

Respect wherever we go

[Chorus]

Rest in peace

Naval chief

Favorite teacher

Rest in peace, Sir

And we will remember you

Bleeding green, red, white, and blue

{Bridge}

You were strong

You were a fighter

Not for you but for family

Not for self but for country

So now as you set sail

Toward the horizon

I pray for you to find

Fair winds and following seas

[Chorus]

Rest in peace

Naval chief

Favorite teacher

Rest in peace, Sir

And we will remember you

Bleeding green, red, white, and blue

{Outro}

And now as you set sail

Toward the horizon

We pray for you to find

Fair winds and following seas
