We Remember
By: M. Garvey

Those we left there is the cold
We remember We remember
Have no fears of growing old
oh do we remember

Those who fell in prison yards
We remember We remember
Savage weather Savage guards
Oh do we remember

Those who died face down in mud
We remember We remember
Asian soil Yankee blood
Oh do we remember

Those whose name we can't forget
We remember We remember
Comrade spirits with us yet
Oh do we remember

Heartbreak Ridge and Pork Chop Hill
We remember We remember
If we don't honor them who will
Oh do we remember

Those who died when far too young
We remember We remember
It is for them this song is sung
Oh do we remember
