Melissa Lou Etheridge (born May 29, 1961) is an American rock singer-songwriter and activist. more »

Up and down this road I go
Skippin' and dodgin'
From a 44

10:03 on a Tuesday morning
In the fall of an American dream
A man is doing what he knows is right 
On flight 93
He loved his mom and he loved his dad
He loved his home and he loved his man
But on that bloody Tuesday morning 
He died an American 

Now you cannot change this
You can't erase this
You can't pretend this is not the truth 

Even though he could not marry 
Or teach your children in our schools  Because who he wants to love
Is breaking your Gods' rules 
He stood up on a Tuesday morning
In the terror he was brave 
And he made his choice 
And without a doubt 
A hundred lives he must have saved 

And the things you might take for granted 
Your inalienable rights
Some might chose to deny him
Even though he gave his life
Can you live with yourself in the land of the free
And make him less of a hero than the other three
Well it might begin to change ya
In a field in Pennsylvania 

 Stand up America 
Hear the bell now as it tolls 
Wake up America 
It's Tuesday morning
Come on let's roll
