Lyrics
Raise a glass

Coal miner’s work in a hole in the ground
Disasters happen and some can’t be found
Lungs are blackened supporting their families
Giving this nation one source of energy
(Chorus)
Raise a glass celebrate America
Raise a glass celebrate America

Blue collar workers keep our nation alive
With inflation rising makes it hard to survive
Working for peanuts it’s a test of there will
No appreciation for their knowledge and skill
(Chorus)
Solo
We stand for freedom though sometimes we slip
Into the darkness history’s full of it
Our act of kindness is surpassed by none
Our might if shown will make them run
(Chorus)
American Farmers drench in sweat to make a buck
It’s a whole lot of work with a little bit of luck
Sun up till sundown work their fingers to the bone
To make just enough so they wont lose their home
(Chorus)
911 put a hole in her heart
But she kept going being brave was her part
The years have passed but we remember it still
Though torn and tattered they can’t break our will
(Chorus 2x)
Short solo

Cheers
I dig the sound of the clean guitar, your authentic vocals. The drums are mixed just right for when the electric lead comes in, but seem tad hot before that. It almost sounded like the lead guitar had limiter pumping pulling back volume randomly. Maybe use a compressor instead? The track was also really long. Like two songs placed together. Not sure how to fix that, since I like all the stanzas. Maybe shorten chorus a few times? and connecting phrases? Not sure.

Really nice vibe. Well done track. Great ending.

two years too long
cool to hear a new one from you.

excellent tune. cool arrangement and mix.
the synth is a nice touch (almost haunting)
i'm guessing the acoustic is an ovation?
