Pennslyvania State Police


 Sergeant Bernard Gorman

What is that wonderful sound

It’s coming from the cemetery ground

Sounds like bagpipes from a military tattoo

A large number of people gathered wearing blue


It’s a police funeral conducted in a military fashion

Marching in line with pride and passion

They are saying goodbye to their fallen comrade

All performed with the precision of a military parade


An observer cannot feel anything but proud

To have touched the life of the person in the funeral shroud

To give your life in such a way

Heroic to the end, the supreme price to pay


The dedication of the boys in blue

To sacrifice their lives for you

They are eternally in your debt

The sacrifice, you do not regret
