WASHINGTON (AP) -- Not content to sit on the sidelines, longtime senator and one-time presidential hopeful Orrin Hatch has penned a song for his Senate buddy John McCain in hopes of helping his White House bid.
Hatch, a Utah Republican who won a platinum award for helping co-write lyrics for a song that sold more than a million records, crafted a tune called "Together Forever" for the presumptive Republican nominee.
Hatch's song, co-written with composer Philip Springer, includes the lines: "Forever together / America is the land we're fighting for / There's a time in history / for a hero's destiny / together forever more."
Hatch, a former Mitt Romney supporter, has co-written songs for other well-known people, including a song called "The Difference Makes the Difference," for Muhammad Ali and "Souls Along the Way," for Sen. Edward Kennedy and wife Vicki.
