I'll Show You A Volunteer


I'll Show You A Volunteer

Show me a person who spends endless hours in training without pay
And I'll show you a volunteer
Show me a person where a cry for help brings split-second dispatch
And I'll show you a volunteer
Show me a person who is devastated when lives are lost or maimed
And I'll show you a volunteer
Show me a person who is graciously welcomed as a next-door neighbour
And I'll show you a volunteer
Show me a person who takes ridicule more than compliments
And I'll show you a volunteer
Show me a person whose car is garaged with the grille facing outwards
And I'll show you a volunteer
Show me a person who sacrifices home life, TV... even tender moments
And I'll show you a volunteer
Show me a person visibly moved at the strains of our National AnthemAnd I'll show you a volunteer
Show me a person who may be asked to give more than just dedication
And I'll show you a volunteer
Show me a person who is asked to give more...and more...and more
And I'll show you a volunteer.
