Track Name: The American Trilogy
"America Standing Tall - The American Trilogy" was released on September 18, 2001, written and produced by The Front Porch Country Band in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on America exactly seven days earlier on September 11, 2001. Music from the trilogy has been performed live around the world.

Echoes Of Your Love. Every American was deeply touched by moving stories of victims making desperate final phone calls to loved ones as they faced disaster. This intensely personal love song will emotionally touch every listener.

American Skies. When terrorists attacked our airlines and tallest skyscrapers, they attacked international symbols for America's fundamental freedom of the skies. But our greatest freedoms and symbols survive the attack. The anthem for a new united America.

ECHOES OF YOUR LOVE
Written expressly for The Front Porch Country Band. Music & Lyrics © 2001 RWGathman.

I still hear the echoes of your voice softly calling
Calling to me one last time
Somehow in that moment as the world came down around you
The voice you needed most to hear was mine
All up and down these concrete canyons
Through the open skies far above
You were calling to me one last time
And whispering your love

They say our dreams are echoes of hearts that feel a longing
Babe I long to hold you close tonight
Every night I'm dreaming you're still lying here beside me
Now nothing in my world feels right
But I know someday the skies again will open
And you'll hold me close in heaven far above
'Til then you're calling to me and I still hear the echoes of your love
Thanks for calling to me one last time and whispering your love, yes
You're still calling to me and I still hear the echoes of your love
Echoes of your love...echoes of your love...echoes of your love

Oh, say - say, can you see
Flying high
Still flying free
Over hearts
Still strong and true
Under skies
Red white and blue

Can you see - here hand in hand
Sea to sea
United we stand
Now as one
Our Nation will rise
Under free
American skies

Oh, say - say, can you see
There she waves
Still flying free
Now as one
One nation will rise
Under free
American skies

Oh, say - say, can you see
There she waves
Still flying free...

AMERICA STANDING TALL

The whole world still remembers - the 7th of December
America's bright blue skies turned red with fire
Over calm Pacific water - a place they call Pearl Harbor
No warning came, 1941
Then freedom called a nation the "Greatest Generation"
Stood as one America heard the call
When the war was finally over the whole world watched in wonder at
America standing straight and proud and tall

And America's still standing tall tonight
With freedom's beacon shining strong and bright
And if I'm the last man standing, I'll stand for all that's right
America's still standing tall tonight

Now the world will long remember - the 11th of September
America's bright blue skies burned red with fire
Over calm Atlantic water our peaceful New York harbor
No warning came - the year 2001
Now freedom calls a nation - and the latest generation
Of Americans will stand and hear the call
And when there's no more terror the world will watch in wonder
At America standing straight and proud and tall

America's still standing tall tonight
With freedom's beacon shining strong and bright
And if I'm the last man standing, I'll stand for all that's right
America's still standing tall tonight
