Three Maine songwriters recently pooled their talents and this week, in time for Veteran's Day observances, co-wrote and recorded a special Patriotic Veteran's song entitled, "Stand Up Tall My Veteran".
Larry Bisbee, operator of the Countryfolk Music Theatre in East Dixfield, wrote the lyrics a year ago and recently connected with Ken Wentworth, a country singer from Bangor and arranger composer, Harry King of Winthrop, Maine and Texas. Bisbee said, "Both of these talented musicians are well known in the music industry, Ken as a singer who performed with Maine's own Dick Curless and King who has worked with many notable singers including Engelbert Humperdink among others.
Bisbee said, " this song is for all veterans of all wars and their families. For all those who have suffered the sacrifices of our military men and women"
We released the song, "Stand Up Tall My Veteran" this week in time for Veteran's Day. It's released on the Artists Carousel Records label owned by Wentworth and is free to download on the internet at www.soundclick.com/larrybuckbisbee
It has steadily been receiving airplay in Australia, New York, New Zealand, Tennessee and Texas.
In just the second day on the Worldwide Soundclick Internet charts it reached #24 and got 651 visits, plays and downloads.. "Needless to say we're very excited about the possibilities", Bisbee said...
They shipped the song to every military and veteran organization in the Uiited States and radio stations from Alaska to Florida as well as our European Allies.
"Yes, you're right, we've been busy", Bisbee commented... "We've
already received letters from Vets and military bases thanking us for
the song. It's a good feeling", he went on to say. You can hear it

Stand up tall my veteran, Our freedom is forever now, You never liked the killing, War is not so glorious, Our veteran men and women In the heat of battle, You're living in the moment, To all our friends and neighbors, So, when you see the wall Kneel on down beside them, To see our flag a'wavin', STAND UP TALL, MY VETERAN,
Our freedom is forever now,
You never liked the killing,
War is not so glorious,
Our veteran men and women
In the heat of battle,
You're living in the moment,
To all our friends and neighbors,
So, when you see the wall
Kneel on down beside them,
To see our flag a'wavin',
STAND UP TALL, MY VETERAN,
