"American Soldier"

by Toby Keith

I'm just trying to be a father,
Raise a daughter and a son,
Be a lover to their mother,
Everything to everyone.
Up and at 'em bright and early,
I'm all business in my suit,
Yeah, I'm dressed for success
From my head down to my boots,
I don't do it for money,
There's still bills that I can't pay,
I don't do it for the glory,
I just do it anyway.

Providing for our future is my responsibility,
Yeah I'm real good under pressure,
Being all that I can be,
And I can't call in sick on Mondays
When the weekends been to strong,
I just work straight through the holidays,
And sometimes all night long.
You can bet that I stand ready
When the wolf growls at the door.

Hey, I'm solid, hey I'm steady,
Hey I'm true down to the core,
And I will always do my duty,
No matter what the price,
I've counted up the cost,
I know the sacrifice,
Oh, and I don't want to die for you,
But if dying's asked of me,
I'll bear that cross with an honor,
'Cause freedom don't come free.

I'm an American soldier, an American,
Beside my brothers and my sisters
I will proudly take a stand,
When liberty's in jeopardy
I will always do what's right,
I'm out here on the front lines,
Sleep in peace tonight.
American soldier, I'm an American,
An American,
An American Soldier
