Time Was by Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra
THIS IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR
I saw a peaceful old valley
With a carpet of corn for a floor
And I heard a voice within me whisper
This is worth fighting for,
I saw a little old cabin
and the river that flowed by the door
And I heard a voice within me whisper,
This is worth fighting for.
Didn't I build that cabin?
Didn't I plant that corn?
Didn't my folks before me
Fight for this country before I was born?
I gathered my loved ones around me
And I gazed at each face I adore
Then I heard that voice within me thunder,
This is worth fighting for
