She left him at the station / Small town Illinois
He’s 6-1 and 205 now / But he’ll always be her little boy
She knew this was his calling / She was strong as she could’ve been
She prayed for extra angels / To bring him home again

So if you raise your glass to freedom / And this land we hold so dear
If you don’t know what it’s like / Living every day in fear
If you raise your voice to city hall / ‘cause you’re free to speak your mind
And sing Amazing Grace on Sunday / With your family by your side
Remember Mrs. Taylor’s son / And pray he’s somewhere safe tonight

She carries a faded picture / From when he was only two
And remembers how she melted / When he said his first “I love you”
Some think he’s a hero / And some make picket signs
She just turns the TV down / And thinks of better times


They fired 21 guns on Tuesday / And laid a flag in the trembling hands
Of one more American mother / Who gave all a mother can


Remember Maggie Taylor
And pray that she finds peace … tonight

    This song totally brings me to tears. My family has gone through this twice (my uncle and my oldest brother) and I really appreciate the way your song honors their sacrifice and our loss. Thank you for this.
