about

The Thin Blue Line is dedicated to the many men and women in law enforcement throughout the U.S.

Steven was one of Carolina’s finest
He was proud to wear the badge
And drive the black and white

He was an honest man, A good husband, and a father
That read his daughter stories when she went to bed at night

He made sure to tell his wife he that he loved her
He told her to feel good about the way he spent his life
And he called himself a man of education
Cause every other night he taught somebody else
How to see wrong and right

And he said
If anything ever happens
Just be proud of me
I give my best every time
I walk the Thin Blue Line

All I wanted to do is care For my family
And give the world a little more light
While I walk the Thin Blue Line

Steven was a beat cop down in Charleston
From the Meeting Street extension
To the city market lights
He knew the freaks out on every corner
And the rats in every crevice, he knew where to find

And he held his gun with the right kind of confidence
When the sirens started crying
ANd the night was feeling tight
And sometimes his wife would have a hard time sleeping
Cause she knew her man was out there somewhere keeping rule in the night

And he said
If anything ever happens
Just be proud of me
I give my best every time
I walk the Thin Blue Line

All I wanted to do is care for my family
And give the world a little more light
While I walk the Thin Blue Line

It was late on a Thursday when he was called to action
A robbery in progress
He was the first on site
And he never saw the man behind the counter
He never had a chance to tell
his wife and child goodnight

And through the tears she knew somewhere, someone was thankful
For the life that he had given to uphold what was right
After all he was a man of education
Helping us all to see a better way of life

And she would hear him say
If anything ever happens
Just be proud of me
I give my best every time
I walk the Thin Blue Line

All I wanted to do is care for my family
And give the world a little more light
While I walk the Thin Blue Line

If anything ever happens
Just be proud of me
I give my best every time
I walk the Thin Blue Line
