~About The Artist~
singer/songwriter: Rick Roark
...got my 1st guitar at age 9 and sang in choirs since age 14. Started singing in cover bands as the lead vocalist by age 25. Wrote and sang jingles in Nashville during the mid 1980''s. Fronted original rock band for 7 years called, "Lovers Lane" (don''t laugh, we thought that name was cool back in the 80''s). At that time, I had real long hair and wore clothes that I wouldn''t be caught dead in now! Lived in Los Angele''s for 13 years but now reside in Nashville. Have over 100 songs that I have written (all genres) in my catalog.
...I felt compelled to write "Remember Me" soon after watching the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 unfold on TV. I''ve always thought that the song wrote itself and that it was bigger than me. I hope that it''s meaning can stir sentiment and pride in the hearts of those who hear it. Also, I hope that listeners know that by purchasing the song, "Remember Me," they are helping to rehabilitate our brave soldiers who have been terribly wounded in the course of performing their duties.
~About The Song~
"Remember Me" has been played at churches, schools and military installations around the world. It is regularly played at troop homecoming celebrations to the soldiers and their families. It is often requested at military funerals and is frequently heard on the radio during our "Patriotic Holiday''s" here in the USA.
...Written within days of the tragic events which occurred on Sept 11th 2001, "Remember Me" symbolizes the true heart and soul of our great nation and distinguishes itself as an "American Anthem." Unique to the "American" experience, it is a reminder of what a privilege it is to be a citizen of the USA.
...Many brave Americans (comprised of every race and gender) have contributed to the wonderful free society that we enjoy here in the United States. The unselfish actions of our soldiers, policemen, firemen and other civic minded countrymen and women are a reflection of the character of this great nation.
"Remember Me" is a heartfelt tribute to the people who dedicate their lives to serve our country.
Listen to "Remember Me" with pride!

REMEMBER ME (C)2001
words & music: Rick Roark
I fought the Red Coats on the Jersey shore
I was a (~choose~ Yankee/Rebel/Soldier)in the Civil War
I was a private in World War One
I was forgotten in Vietnam
from Pearl Harbor to Iraqi Freedom
I was the one
(1)my father''s son (2)my mother''s son (3)my country''s son
I tasted life when I was around
the sweet smell of a summer''s rain
snow on the ground that melts in the spring
all the simple little things
fill my memory
the morning sun and the moon at night
falling in love for the very first time
my mother''s heart
and my father''s pride
I take with me
Bridge: (excerpt from) PRESIDENT BUSH''S RADIO ADDRESS TO THE NATION - aired Sept 15th, 2001
sixty-one floors and Lord, I''m tired
just give me a chance and I''ll fight this fire
we''re climbing up there to get them out
with smoke so thick that I can''t see now
Lord, I think these walls are coming down
coming down on me
I close my eyes and I see my wife
our unborn child she has inside
if I could hold them just one more time
