THE LYRICS:

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.
Chorus:
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.
Chorus:
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,
Bout the things that I might have been.
There’s no consolation,
To the forgotten brave.
Chorus:
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.
Chorus:
Carry me home down The Highway of Heroes.
People above with there flgs flying low
Carry me softly, down The Highway of Heroes.
True Patriot Love,
There was never more x 6

  1. What a wonderful job you all did singing that song. I think I could pick out many of your individual voices! 😉 I just drove the Highway of Heros a few weekends ago when travelling from Toronto to Kingston to visit our daughter at university. You really touched my heart with your rendition. Great job!
