"Bye Bye Bin Laden" lyrics

No curtain call

As you slipped into the sea.

Made not as sound

As you settled in the deep.

Thousands died,

While millions still live free.

So long Osama

Bye-Bye Bin Laden

Thousands died, but millions still live free.

 

What would I say

If I met you face to face?

A gentle people

Tainted by disgrace.

Twin towers fall

Sick smile upon your face.

So long Osama

Bye-bye Bin Laden

Thousands died, but millions still live free.

 

Sanctuary

Concubines and greed.

Pakistani diplomats

Enabling your deeds.

Profiteers, who looked the other way.

So long Osama

Bye-bye Bin Laden

Thousands died, but millions still live free.

 

Slip through the darkness

Troops of Navy Seals

Marksman’s bullet found you

Despite your human shield.

Sleep well in hell, sir

Among the living dead.

So long Osama

Bye-bye Bin Laden

Thousands died, but millions still live free.

So long Osama

Bye-bye Bin Laden, thousands died but millions still live free.

 

About my song

I’m not quite sure how this song popped into my head. It seemed like a patriotic song has been lacking in our nation for a long time; I also thought that our heroic Navy Seals needed more credit and thanks than they have received. This recording is just me and my Gibson flat top. I would love to hear it played by a solid country band with telecaster guitar, fiddles, bass, and a nice peddle steel guitar. Either way, I hope you enjoy it! Tim
