Into the blue

Into the Blue is a project honoring our police officers. They respond to our calls and cries for help with bravery and perseverance. I wrote this song to honor them and their journey.  A good friend of mine, Charles Richardson, recorded vocals and created music for it last September. Sande Sue was touched by the song and wanted to cover the song, as well. We have interest in this song from some west coast entities that place songs in media. Thank you to all police officers for their sacrifices and commitment to keeping our country safe.  We appreciate you.  
If you choose to download the track, the entire amount paid will go to either The Tulsa Police Department or the Knox County Police Department to assist with any officer or their family needing assistance. You can choose to specify which city you would like your proceeds to benefit. If neither is selected, we will divide it equally. Thank you for listening and for your support!

Here are the lyrics:

INTO THE BLUE

 

This life ain’t what 
He thought it would be 
He’s got a lot on his mind 
As he drives through the city 
Kid on the corner 
Staring him down
Just a year ago 
He felt welcome in this town 

It ain’t always easy 
Sometimes it’s just a shame 
No responsibility 
Needin’ someone to blame 
He’ll take the call on Central 
He’ll brave the avenue 
He’ll be the one to protect 
He will marche into the blue 

A child’s hand she holds 
Eyes are full of grace 
Deep down she wonders how 
She ever survived this place 
She’ll take her somewhere safe 
Where she can’t be hurt again 
But to those who look on 
You’ld think she wore a badge of sin 
It ain’t always easy 

Sometimes it’s just a shame 
No responsibility 
Needin’ someone to blame 
She’ll take the call on Broadway 
She’ll brave the avenue 
She’ll be the one to protect 
She marches into the blue 

You never know day to day 
What these angels run into 
Brave and courageous 
They march into the blue 

Had a call on Western 
In the middle of the night 
Some said a robbery 
Some said a fight 
As he tried to help 
The suspect drew... 
Yet another hero... 
Marched into the blue...

Sande Sue

Sande Sue is an accomplished musician, historian and former educator. She will tell you she is retired, but her dedication to her music and her historical endeavors will convince you otherwise. From a young age, her father instilled the desire to create music within her heart. She made a promise to her father to keep bluegrass music alive and she fulfills this promise as often as possible. Sande Sue and her father each carry a background in law enforcement, as well, which propelled her into recording her version of Into the Blue. She has many musical projects in the works. We will be sharing links to her projects soon!
