Final Monday in May (lyrics)

flag

Final Monday in May

Verse 1
The sky is full of both,  blue and grey
We honor all that have fallen
Flowers laid on an unmarked soldier’s grave
I stand in silence giving homage today

Pre-chorus

This final Monday in May
This final Monday in May

Chorus

To all who fought and died because  they served
Our  flag  flies high only because of you
The  country’s  freedom is because of you preserved
In your honor the final Monday in May is reserved

Verse 2
Fold into three corners the red, white, and blue
When you died a gun salute  was given too
At the time your valor recognized  by a few
Now the nation’s flag at half mast celebrates you

Pre-chorus

This final Monday in May
This final Monday in May

Chorus

To all who fought and died because  they served
Our flag flies  high  only because of you
The  country’s  freedom is because of you preserved
In your honor the final Monday in May is reserved

Verse 3

No hesitation gave your life for me
With the  final breath that you took
All so that I would be forever free
A vision I  wish you were here to see

Pre-chorus

This final Monday  in May
This final Monday in May

Chorus
To all who fought and died because  they served
Our flag flies high only because of you
The  country’s  freedom is because of you preserved
In your honor the final Monday in May is reserved

This final Monday of May
This final Monday of May
