A note from John about this free song:

I wrote this song to honor my Grandfather, SGT William Rich, who earned 6 purple hearts in WWII. To me, he was THE MAN. We the people owe a debt of gratitude to our veterans that can never be fully repaid. It’s because of the Good Lord and great Americans like my Grandfather, and all the men and women who have served our country past and present, that we get to live in the greatest most prosperous nation in the history of the world. “We’d all be speaking German or living under the flag of Japan if it wasn’t for the good Lord and the MAN.” Please feel free to tell your lists of friends to come and download this song for free! God bless America. Love it or leave it.

“Good Lord and the Man” Lyrics

Well he was one of the millions

who signed up to defend us

long ago in 1941

when they sucker punched us in Pearl Harbor

he fought under Macarthur seventeen with an army Thompson gun

Well he stormed a lot of beaches slept in jungles with the leaches

he saw things young man should never see

and when they shot him in the shoulder

he got back up and he marched over

left a lot of brothers dead in kawagalie

If it wasn’t for the good lord and the man

there wouldn’t be a breath of freedom in this land

and I see people on my T.V. taking shots at uncle Sam

I hope they always remember why they can

cause we’d all be speakin’ German livin’ under the flag of Japan

if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man

if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man

Well I’m the grandson of a soldier and I’d fight the whole world over

if duty called and freedoms on the line

but thanks to the greatest generation and the ones still fighting for our nation

I’ve never had to kill for my way of life

If it wasn’t for the good lord and the man

there wouldn’t be a breath of freedom in this land

and I see people on my T.V. taking shots at uncle Sam

I hope they always remember why they can

cause we’d all be speakin’ German livin’ under flag of Japan

if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man

if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man

there wouldn’t be a breath of freedom in this land

and I see people on my T.V. taking shots at uncle Sam

I hope they always remember why they can

cause we’d all be speakin’ German livin’ under flag of Japan

if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man

if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man
