  John Wayne in his Western
Confronting the rustlers and Indians

Paul Newman in Cool Hand Luke – Stay Cool!
Then in the Hustle shooting pool

Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry – “Do You Feel Lucky?”
Against all those that were very unlucky

Roy and Gene our singing Cowboys
Always got a tune for the beauties

Steve Mc Queen in the Bullitt in the mustang
The chase going out in a bang

Patrick Swayze in Road House
Wish we all have a beautiful spouse

Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator – “I’ll be back”
He came back to protect his man’s back

Heath Ledger in Knight’s Tale and the Joker
We lost a good young actor

Marlon Brando as the Godfather
His best roll he never faultier

James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause
We all could use a good cause

There are so many more, I just can’t name them all
I just wish that not so many had to fall

But then there are the most important ones in all – Our Military Force
Out doing their job no matter the conditions – Our American Force
