- He's A Battle Axe Rev. Rogers 5:45
The first time I heard this song I was a at a farewell party for an elder member of The Boston Community Choir who was relocating to Florida. As the party wound down, he stepped forward and asked if it would be alright if he sang a song. Everyone nodded okay and he started singing this song…acapella…and the choir jumped right in! It was a moment I’ll never forget because he had a booming baritone/bass voice and sang every word with power and conviction.
Although some peace loving folk find songs like this too militant and bellicose for their liking, I’m fine with them when they are sung from the heart and with soul.
