Posted in honor of Pat Tillman's Nov 6, 2017 birthday. He would have been 41 this year. (RIP 11-06-1976 - 4-22-2004)
The song was written by Vic Sadot after reading the Editor & Publisher AP story, and others, after Pat Tillman’s death. See “Was Pat Tillman Murdered? – AP Gets Coroner Documents” 7-26-07 Editor & Publisher. (Lyrics below) www.editorandpublisher.com/news/was-ti…w-documents
Excerpt: “Army medical examiners were suspicious about the close proximity of the three bullet holes in Pat Tillman’s forehead and tried without success to get authorities to investigate whether the former NFL player’s death amounted to a crime, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. ‘The medical evidence did not match up with the, with the scenario as described,’ a doctor who examined Tillman’s body after he was killed on the battlefield in Afghanistan in 2004 told investigators. The doctors – whose names were blacked out – said that the bullet holes were so close together that it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired from a mere 10 yards or so away...”
Ballad of Pat Tillman (lyrics)
Pat Tillman was a kind and a caring little boy He brought his mom and pop a lot o’ laughter, pride, and joy They tried to teach their son how to tell the right from wrong How not to be a bully just because you’re big and strong
Young Tillman was a legendary famous football star He was handsome. He was humble, and admired from afar He made a lot o’ big plays for his Arizona team… And he made a lot of money in the American dream!
But after Nine-Eleven, he had to throw it all away To fight those “evil doers” who could kill in such a way When the Towers and the Pentagon were scenes of blood and death Pat Tillman swore to avenge them or to breathe his dyin’ breath
Chorus: So remember Patrick Tillman when those flags are all displayed How the Empire stole “Old Glory” for a fear and hate parade! Yes, remember Patrick Tillman! The many like him lies have made! And Hell has no fury like a patriot betrayed!
First Instrumental Bridge:
He believed the “official story” Bush told of the attack To take the “war on terror” to Afghanistan and Iraq He started asking questions from those far-off battlefields He was reading Noam Chomsky… to his mother he revealed
On that fateful day when those bullets cut him down Well, he was hailed a hero in every little town The Pentagon exploited him as a recruitment poster boy Made up a phony story for the media to deploy
His parents at the funeral were torn with grief and strife They were used just like young Patrick who’d just lost his only life The tragic truth was not revealed! It was “friendly murder”, not the foe! They were lied to like the “hero” of the propaganda show
(chorus) Second Instrumental Bridge
They were roundly castigated when they dared to tell aloud How their son investigated…How that also made them proud How he planned to work for peace, if he’d ever make it back Pious pundits called them “traitors” in a wolf pack attack
Pat Tillman was a legendary famous football star He was handsome. He was humble, and admired from afar He made a lot of forays for his Army Ranger team… But Patrick died for Bush’s lies…For a nightmare, not a dream!
Alive he might be helping take the treason team apart He was bravely asking questions, yes, and he was very smart If Nine-Eleven Truth reveals a home-made psy-war raid… Then this phony “war on terror” ‘s just a cover-up charade!
