ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In June 2011, I received a call from Vicky Mohler, founder and president of Support America's Armed Forces, whose focus is in supporting active duty Servicemen, Woman and Veterans in anything to do with morale health and welfare. She told us about a compilation CD project entitled NEVER FORGOTTEN that would benefit the Vets and the Families that lost loved ones in the 911 Tragedy. I immediately touched base with the producer of the project and he invited us to write a song.

We had a song that we had written for our upcoming CD BLOOD RED BLUES, entitled "Someday I'll be Goin' Home." Rob suggested I change the lyric to fit the theme. I balked, but that night I tossed and turned and knew he was right.
On 6/11/11 before Sunrise, I arose, went to the living room and re-wrote the lyric for this project. I felt like I was being channeled by a Soldier who wanted to tell the world that he was coming home carrying all his fellow comrades in his heart, soul and mind, so that when you looked in his eyes, you would see their sacrifice. I cried the entire time I was writing it and for two hours afterwards as I read the lyric to Rob and worked it into the chord structure of the existing song.

I have come to realize through the songwriting process of "Someday I'll Be Goin' Home," that war is one of the most intense representations of life in all its emotional forms.. heartbreak, death, fear, joy, ache, longing, physical pain, success, failure, full-filled dreams, shattered dreams, love, hate, power, emotional devastation.. need I go on?
Vets represent all forms of life.. homeless, wounded, jobless, depressed, paralyzed, hungry, lonely, scared, lost, mentally insane, ignored elders, the list is endless. Unfortunately, this demographic of our population is not going to end anytime soon, if ever; and in the coming years it’s only going to get worse.

Being part of this project, is only the beginning for Rob and I as far as working to somehow be there for Vets through our music. I hope you will join us in uniting heart and action and purchase this tune. 100% of the Net Proceeds will be given to the National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide - http://www.na2evs.org/index.php - an organization geared toward ending Veteran suicide in our Nation. As the last line of our song states "And I know our Lord will smile, I know He'll say Well Done."

“Our highest intent and harshest face parallels that of War - Survival.” - Cee Cee James

Someday I’ll Be Goin’ Home
Leavin’ this war behind
And all the Soldiers who lost their lives on the line
Fighting for our freedom
Such a heavy sacrifice

I’m gonna carry all their laughter
The hidden tears that they cried
I’m gonna carry their sweat, blood and fear
And the courage in their eyes
I’m gonna carry their pride until the day I die

Someday I’ll Be Goin’ Home
I’ll be leaving this war behind
And I’m gonna carry all those Soldiers
In my heart, my soul, and my mind
So when you look in my eyes
You will see their sacrifice

Someday I’ll Be Goin’ Home
To my wonderful family
I’ll fall into their arms and their sweet warm love
I’m home... I’m finally home by the grace of God

And everyday that passes
I’ll sit and bow my head
For all the Soldiers who died fighting for our rights
Prayin’ for their families, their children
Such a heavy sacrifice

Someday I’ll Be Goin’ Home
Leaving this war behind
And I’m gonna carry all those Soldiers, yes I’m am
In my heart, my soul, and my mind
So when you look in my eyes
You will see their sacrifice

Someday I’ll Be Goin’ Home
I’ll be leaving this world all alone
And when I walk through those pearly gates
Don’t ya know, all those Soldiers I’ll embrace
And I know our Lord will smile, I know he’ll say well done
And I know our Lord, he’s gonna smile, I know he’ll say well done
And I know our Lord he’s gonna smile yes he is,
And I know he’ll say well done
Ou, ou, well done
Ou, ou, well done
He’s gonna smile and say well done
Take you in his arms and say well done
Look you in your heart and say well done
Take you in his arms and say.... well... done
