  1. This song sounds mournful and sad but it hold much pride and trust in it and inspires me to open my eyes and makes me realize all the things good in this world and what people of our country have died and fought for. So we could have good lives and this song inspires it

  2. 50 yr old man thinkn bout my papaw he fought in WW2 cryin bout those guys saved our asses an today people don't care, GOD bless em all

  3. the Timeout off of 155 mentioned around the 2:15 mark was a strip club outside of Tyler, TEXAS… I spent a few dollars there in my younger days, and once was quickly escorted out after playing the drum solo from "In the Air Tonight" on a dancer's posterior…..

  4. My oldest brother, a submariner in the Pacific, my bothers-in law, sailors in the Pacific at Okinawa, cousins at Bouganville, and in the 8th Air Force…..God bless them

  5. HE wasn't a mountain of a man, but he bagged bodies on Omaha Beach watched most of his brother die, he was shot and frozen to a tree in WW2 and survived, came home built a farm and a family, he watched his wife die when his ticket should have been punched at least a couple times over. I didn't know him as well as many but I will always love and respect you Gramps. All these years later and my wife died in my arms, we have a passel of your great grands which by God's grace you met them all, and I just hope they follow our great King and that their children will someday look back and remember me in the same light as I see you.

  6. Omg this just taught me how to really sing.. added this guy wrote songs for many country artists singers and I'm telling you what he changed my life just now thank you

  7. Amen Brother, song reminds me of my Papaw, he wasn't a veteran of anything other than hard work and miles of it but it still reminds me of him. I joined the military eight years ago and moved away from home, its hard sometimes seeing my grandparents get older and my brothers not doing much to help them out. i just wish i could be there. but this song and others like it bring me home to the old farm.

  8. This goes out my grandfather he was in world war2 he went to cross emagema when flag went up he passed at 95 he was a angle

  9. There are four perfectly written songs in history
    1. Amazing Grace
    2. He Stopped Loving Her Today
    3. In Color
    4. Good To Be Back Home

  10. I'm a 46yr old US Army vet of two combat tours in Iraq, 03-05, my Dad served in combat in Vietnam 69-70, his Dad, my Grandfather, a radio man at Utah Beach on D-Day in 1944, hit with German fire and was wounded, his younger brother, my Great-Uncle, served in combat in Korea 53-54, wounded badly with his right leg bein damn near blown off at the knee….all of 4 of us proudly served this nation, took our Oath of Enlistment very seriously and my Dad and I still do, and we all have suffered from the memories of the shit we saw, the shit we had to do, of the brothers who we lost to enemy fire….When I think back and remember the shit I wanna forget about Iraq, I can't get the smell of burning oil and human flesh outta my nose for hours afterward, it's the damnedest thing and not even time is helpin me forget that smell, it's as strong as ever…anyway, THANK YOU to anyone commenting here who served in a branch of our military, and yes, even you squids from the Navy….lol…..HOOAH

  11. my grampa was a vet in veitnam stationed off of Japan. Both my grandma and grampa survived the great depression on my dads side .

  12. My father WW2 , Korea , Vietnam RIP Dad until we meet again he told me stories of war he was scared to death.
    Rest easy solider day is done..

  13. First time I heard this song, I was driving this girl back to her dorm room to take her to pound town, always a good memory

  14. This song was the first song to hit me in the feels. It inspired me to go ask my grandad what it was like in the early days of are ranch. He was adopted at a young age. He started guitar at 10 and played in a band at 11 he lives on are ranch in MT to this day. This song just hits me hard 😢 He showed me all the pictures of his past house (it burned down) so he picked up his tools and built his current house by himself. Too this day he still gets up at dawn and works to sundown.

  15. Love this song but hits me everytime the timeline is just about a match to my grandpas he lived on a cotton farm was in the army in the 40s. played it at his funeral

  16. This song has the best bridge of any country song. The entirety of what he is singing about summed up in two simple lines (at 2:50) and it sets up the final chorus so well. Jamey Johnson is a master taking other artists to school.

  17. For those 20k who don’t like this then get the hell out of America. Vets have served and what have you done. My grandfather was a WW2 vet and my uncle was in war and my brother is in the marines so if u don’t respect that then f*ck you

  18. Amazing this song was at my great goas funarel 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 i love ur songs !! R.i.p. ggpa

  19. At first when I was younger my dad played this song and it was a really good song but I'm now 14 and as I keep understanding what everything means this song almost makes me cry and it's hard to make me cry and I'll always listen to this song no matter what

  20. My Grandfather was in the US Army in WWII and was a POW for 2 yrs and just couldn't amagin what he seen and went thru they were real men back then nothing like men in this day and age they did everything for this country and family God bless you POP POP RIP

  24. I’m 16 and I just lost my grandma I always used to see in Alabama she was from minnesota and moved down there cause it’s to cold up here,I live there and I’m heart broken and I lost my grandpa in 2013 and miss him so much I wish I could see her again

  25. Jamey Johnson – In Color: I'm ashamed to say I just learned the name of this artist, after listening to it for ten years; it doesn't change the way I feel every time I hear it, great music.

  26. It sucks veterans don't get as much praise they deserve it a hella lot more that the chick who invented the chair to stop "manspreading"

  27. Vietnam was really bad war it was anything goes only rule was try to survive. I couldn't imagine been dropped off in helicopter and watch it leave. You know it was heard and they are on way to you. That is if not already there or on boat and you see landing ahead. Nothing could prepare you for that. Many lost lives and it was bad. I doubt ever know how many. Ones made it back never right again… no one cares

  28. Never served. But many of my uncle's and older friend did. The history has gone by now and it's sad that today's kids will just let it fade with absolutely no respect for all of you.

  29. My pap was a marine. Tough fucker too lol but as I got older i wish i wouldve spent more time with him before he passed July of 2018 😢. 84 years old. Love u grandpa

  30. Can you imagine the young "men" of today having to deal with what the young Men had to deal with in WWII? The young "men" of today would be screaming, "MY ANXIETY! (cry cry cry)…I NEED A SAFE SPACE! MAKE IT STOP!" (cry cry cry). Never mind. The young "men" of today wouldn't even make it out of boot camp. What am I thinking?

  31. My grandfather passed 2 years now at 96, he was a turret gunner in wwii and a POW for 9 months. He was a high school superintendent and then principle for years. He was gonna go pro baseball but enlisted the summer that year Pearl Harbor happened and because he had friends that were killed. My hero and this song hits all the right notes for me. Shivers and tears. Married my grandmother the summer he was liberated in Germany and married for 72 years to her

  32. Every time I hear this song, and anytime I hear this song, I am taken back to a time before I was born, before 1962. The memories must be from previous lives. Thank you for the previous memories which are not mine, but from my WWI and WWII grandfathers. Yes, my grandfathers fought in both World Wars and this song brings it to life. Thank you.

  33. Just saw him last night in Tulsa Oklahoma..man….no cover band ..just walked out..unannounced. Did his thang..it was amazing!

  34. You must been in a proper class to Know that heaven is in black and white,
    only to realize everything truly is beautiful in color

  35. Still one of the most honest new rage country songs I've heard that absolutely should be respected by anyone who ever has ever love this genre!
