They join together because it’s the right thing to do
They hope and they pray that this is their last mission
Respectfully they come to share a soldier’s last tattoo
They come to exhibit respect, not for any recognition
They arrive with thundering pipes astride steeds of steel
Black leather and shiny chrome beasts with Old Glory flying
Diverse backgrounds brought together to help Families heal
To shield the mourners from the unholy abhorrent lying.
Hawks, doves, civilians and vets they come to support
To comfort the Family and friends of the fallen warrior
They help provide a solemn respectful, fitting, final escort
Honoring the freedom fighter and negating the agitator
Freedom rings with every rev from each screaming v-twin
As these road warriors stand proud lining the boulevard
Seeing another hero off to Valhalla much to their chagrin
They proudly live up to their name as the Patriot Guard
