Diligence

Diligence
A grandfather was talking with his grandson one day,
about the things he'd done in a land far away.
He said, "Tommy, I've done many things I didn't like to do,
but it insured our children could live freely, like you".
Before I went to war all I had killed was that twelve point Buck.
and I tell you it was nothing but luck.
I had an old Iver Johnson twelve gauge loaded with double ought.
I don't really know the last time it had been shot.
But that Buck showed his head out from behind some trees
My mind thought, "Wow," and I let out a sneeze.
Just as the buck turned and started to run,
I pulled back on the trigger and down he come.
That Buck was so big he fed our family for half of the year,
and back in my day food was something that people held dear.
The grandfather walked to his bed and the night stand,
and came back holding a medal in his hand.
He said, "This is my award for the sacrifices in combat I had to give".
To insure that Americans had a free country in which to live,
but, Tommy, each day they're trying to take our freedoms away.
I've been a hunter and a soldier and guns aren't for play.
Weapons should always be in responsible hands,
whether for sport, hunting or protecting this land.
