Ballad of the Green Berets
by Barry Sadler



Fighting soldiers from the sky
Fearless men who jump and die
Men who mean just what they say
The brave men of the Green Berets

Silver wings upon their chest
These are men Americas best
One hundred men will test today
But only three win the Green Beret

Trained to live off natures land
Trained in combat hand to hand
Men who fight by night and day
Courage take from the Green Beret

Silver wings upon their chest
These are men Americas best
One hundred men will test today
But only three win the Green Beret

Back at home a young wife waits
Her Green Beret has met his fate
He has died for those oppressed
Leaving her this last request

Put silver wings on my sons chest
Make him one of Americas best
He'll be a man they'll test one day
Have him win the Green Beret
