American Soldier

The battle started blazing
And I grabbed the big gun
I found comfort in a foxhole
Rounds totaled twenty-one
I can't remember
When I had my last meal
I'm an American soldier
How does it feel?

The alarm was fully sounded
And my eyesight was a gaze
I drug in my best friend
I looked fear in the face
My heart was really pumping
But my feet knew what to do
I'm an American soldier
I've got nothing to lose
I'd sacrifice it all
For the red, white, and blue

Courage isn't free
Neither are the limbs and lives lost
But for the USA
I'd die at any cost
So here's to the fallen, the few, and the brave
Our heroes rolling home scattered
Torn but not afraid
