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 up for success
From my head down to my boots

I don't do it for the money
There's bills that I can't pay
I don't do it for the glory
Providing for our future's my responsibility
Yeah, I'm real good under pressure
Being all that I can be

And I can't call in sick on Monday's
When the weekends been too strong
I just work straight through the holidays
And sometimes all night long
You can bet 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 always will 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 dyin's asked of me
I'll bear that cross with honor
'Cause freedom don't come free

I'm an American soldier, an American
Beside my brothers and sisters I will proudly take a stand
When Liberty's in jeopardy, I will always do whats right
I'm out here on the front line
Sleep in peace tonight
American soldier, I'm an American soldier

Yeah, an American soldier, an American
Beside my brothers and sisters I will proudly take a stand
When Liberty's in jeopardy, I will always do whats right
I'm out here on the front line
So sleep in peace tonight
American soldier, I'm an American
An American, an American soldier
