Highway of Heroes

The day I shipped out
They numbered a dozen
Upon my return
Were a hundred or so
From the coast and from the prairies
I bet they keep coming
Add one more name from Ontario

Carry me home down The Highway of Heroes
People above with their flags flying low
Carry me softly, down The Highway of Heroes
True Patriot Love
There was never more

I served with distinction
No visions of glory
I served without question
Or personal gain
Seek no justification
It’s not part of my story
And it offers no comfort
To the ones who remain

Carry me home down The Highway of Heroes
People above with their flags flying low
Carry me softly, down The Highway of Heroes
True Patriot Love
There was never more

I took up my vocation
I was called by my nation
Without hesitation
My answer I gave
Now I am not wondering
The things that I might have been
I'm no consolation
To the forgotten brave

So Carry me home down The Highway of Heroes
People above with their flags flying low
Carry me softly, down The Highway of Heroes
True Patriot Love
There was never more

Carry me home down The Highway of Heroes
People I love with their heads held low
Carry me softly, down The Highway of Heroes

True Patriot Love, There was never more
There was never more
There was never more
There was never more
There was never more
There was never more
