Heroes of the Morning
To the tune of “Angel of the Morning” by James Wesley Voight (yep, Angelina Jolie's uncle)
as sung by Merrilee Rush And The Turnabouts

The subdued strings of four-piece band
Will laud our name as we depart
For it was we who took a stand
The loyal, the brave, the pure of heart
And though we knew the odds were bleak
We fought and kept our winning streak

     We are the heroes of the morning, heroes
     The mild, the meek we are no longer, baby
     We are the heroes of the morning, heroes
     So quickly turn away, and flee

The clouds were low, the sky was dim
As we ventured forth from port
We who had heard the cannons' din
Though from that battle did abort
And though they called us “fraidy cats”
We knew we were much more than that

     We are the heroes of the morning, heroes
     The mild, the meek we are no longer, baby
     We are the heroes of the morning, heroes
     So quickly run away, go elsewhere and play
     Just flee
     Tears will come, to your eyes
     You will cry, baby, baby
     We are the heroes of the morning, heroes
     The mild, the meek we are no longer, baby
     We are the heroes of the morning, heroes...

Out of curiosity, is this version the most well known version?  I've heard this song before, but I don't remember who did it.

This song was originally recorded by Evie Sands. However, her label then went bankrupt and Merilee Rush made it famous. In the 80s, Kim Karnes re-popularized it with her version, which went to #4 on the charts. Lots of singers have covered it over the years, including Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders.

I prefer the Merilee Rush version above all others because I really like that dark, smooth bass of the horn in it, perhaps because I used to play a cornet in stage band. I wish that my band teachers had let us play this song but they usually didn't have a clue as to what people actually wanted to listen to.
