Rusty Old Helmet
Old State Travelers
I have always enjoyed searching for antiques that speak to me. Sometimes when you hold an object in your hands your imagination is sparked as you contemplate who owned it, where it has been, what it has seen and what stories it could tell if it could talk. This was certainly the case when I found a rusty World War I helmet at a garage sale. Kevin challenged me to write a song about the person who might have owned this helmet – hence this song.
It is easy to become so wrapped up in the issues that divide us that we can completely overlook the men and women who sacrificed so that we can live in a free society.
Our history is filled with stories of everyday folks that put their lives on hold to serve something bigger than themselves. We hope you enjoy this song as much as we enjoyed recording it and bringing this story to life.
