My Heart Goes To Guam

Rickey Sadler 1955 (Laffayette)

If I wonder my way back to Guam
I sit and listen to those island Palm,
They say here begins America's day
I can see the lovely Sunset at Tumon Bay,
The Ocean waves breaking over the reefs
There on the beach I think of my beliefs,
Oh beautiful island of the Virgin Mary
Mary's footstep on the ocean I will carry,
I honor the patriotic people living there
They will always be apart of as I share,
I'll tell you of their struggle for freedom
In the great war they found their wisdom
My view from a hill of this mystical place
The warm tropical air caresses my face,
The rolling hill looked so gentle and calm
Thinking is my way to go back to Guam,
