about

Song I wrote about the 4th of July, a single as of now, more folk punky than the rest of my output.

lyrics

Well I was walking down a Bristol street with friends
It was the 4th of July and the parade route went right by the house that we were staying in
The crowds were loud and wild and generally very happy to be there
And I was grumpy and cold and confused and a little bit jaded with patriotism
And then a float came down the road and stopped in front of us
And a man stepped down said "hello, my name is Sargent Dan."
And Sargent Dan he began to sing for the kids who were clapping and waving their hands
He sang old songs about freedom and flags and peace and the american way
While dancing kinda badly and running around in the middle of the street
He couldn't of been younger than 60 but man, he moved with the spunk of someone half his age.

And that got me to thinking, maybe it doesn't really matter what you're singin' about, as long as you're singin' with style and love and good nature

Sargent Dan is a better man than the rest of us, oh yeah x3
Sargent Dan is probably a better man than me.
