      Lyrics for Lucero - "The Blue and the Gray"

      The family's been here for
      The last hundred years
      And it's all that he's ever known
      Life in the cotton fields
      Swamps and the rolling hills
      Always called Arkansas home
      But when the war came
      Like his father before
      He joined the army
      And went to the war
      Leaving the rolling hills
      Swamps and the cotton fields
      Bound for a Normandy shore
      The patch that he wore on
      His uniform
      Was both blue and grey
      The colors of men who died
      Fighting another fight
      And more would die today
      At Omaha beach against Germany
      A young country boy
      Struggled out of the sea
      Up on the sand where
      Many a man
      Would never know victory
      Fought the entire time
      Up on the front line
      It was lonely, bloody and cold
      The only relief he'd find
      Might be some old French wine
      The water was all dirty and froze
      But he was luckier than some
      A better soldier than most
      He came back from Europe
      But never got home
      Now he's back on the farm
      But not out of harm
      He drank so the pain wouldn't show
      Well he left behind
      My brothers and I
      We never really knew him at all
      I barely remember him
      Smoking with a grin
      But looking mean; standing tall
      Well I can only hope
      That he wouldn't be ashamed
      Of the man I become
      And the life that I made
      And he did the hardest part
      And lived life with all his heart
      And I hope I don't let him down
