#TuesdayTreasures Guest Post by Art Greenhaw

Good Morning!

Please welcome Art Greenhaw, author of God's Silver Soldiers, back to our blog today to share with us something he treasures....

I treasure police officers/men and women in blue/blue lives protect so I'd like to share the lyrics to this song I wrote...
Men In Blue

They’ll know us by the flag of the brave and true, we’re proud to be Men in Blue.

This is the story of men and women in blue,
this is the peace officers’ way,
upholding the law is what we’ve all sworn,
and for us, it’s all in a day,
facing life with courage, honor and skill,
that call after call we renew,
when it’s our time to go, it’s all about what’s right,
cause we’ve pledged to be men in blue.

So, sometime crime wins, well, life’s not always fair,
we move on with steel-eyed face,
it’s nothing for us to get knocked around,
but stay down, to us, that’s disgrace,
the harder we’re thrown, the higher we bounce,
we’re proud that we’re brave and we’re true,
at the end of the day, it’s all about what’s right,
for we’re called to be men in blue.

We’re men and women of the law, peace officers all,
and we’ve served the best that we could,
we’ve all done our part for the safety of our town,
and justice will surely call that “good”,
now, death may come crawling, or it may come with a pounce,
but whether he’s old or he’s new,
when we look in the mirror, it’s all about what’s right,
for we’re called to be men in blue.

They’ll know us by the flag of the brave and the true,
we’re proud to be men in blue.

 What a lovely song, Art! My deceased husband was a police officer so you know I-as do many-treasure Men in Blue. Thank you for sharing with us.
