In the aftermath of the horrific shooting in Las Vegas, singer-songwriter Dallas Wayne has penned a moving song called “The Basics.” The song is a reminder to Americans that we are blessed to live in this country and that we need to remember the basics – like love, respect, and compassion.
“The Basics” is a beautiful and simple song that speaks to the heart of what it means to be an American. Dallas Wayne’s clear, resonant voice delivers the lyrics with sincerity and emotion. The song is a reminder that, in spite of our differences, we are all Americans and we need to come together in times of tragedy.
The lyrics of “The Basics” are as follows:
We’re blessed in America need to remember the basics
Love, respect, and compassion or we’ll surely lose our way
Let’s take care of each other it’s the American way.
In God we trust is more than just words on paper
It’s the way we ought to live our lives each day
Respect for all our fellow Americans no matter where they’re from
We’re all in this together and we’re going to make it through
Just remember the basics love, respect, and compassion.
If we could all just follow these simple rules America would be a better place for everyone.
