Intro hook (G Harmonica)

Intro

Intro hook 2

Yeah;
they were the greatest Generation
Who Fought for liberation
Against an occupation
For our freedom

Yeah;
they were the greatest Generation
Came to the brink of devastation
The end of civilization
To save our freedom, yeah

Intro hook 2

Yeah;
They were the greatest Generation
Who faced annihilation
From the radiation
For our freedom

Yeah;
they were the greatest Generation
Have the highest admiration
and appreciation
So we can live, free
Yeah

Intro hook 2

We should never take for granted
The seeds they planted
What we were handed
One day I hope we finally see
Just what it means
To be free



Solo over verse



Yeah;
We were the 60’s generation:
Saw assassination
Somehow lost our inspiration
Surrendered to temptation
From over medication
Weren’t we the greatest nation?
When will we finally awaken?
From our dream

Yeah;
they we're my parents generation
Who suffered deprivation
Through the great depression
Deserve a celebration
For their dedication
Who proudly served our nation
Who paid the ultimate price
For our freedom! Yeah
