Two more song's lyrics

These two come from Toby Keith. The last time I did this I broke it down by verse and chorus and then blogger went right ahead and changed it so I'm not going to waste my time with these two.

They are kinda country, but very patriotic. I listen to them before every mission in my truck now. So without further ado, here we go.

Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue:

Verse 1:
  • American girls and American guys
  • we'll always stand up and salute
  • we'll always recognize
  • when we see old glory flying
  • there's a lot of men dead
  • so we can sleep in peace at night when we lay down our head

  • My daddy served in the Army
  • but he lost his right eye
  • but he flew a flag out in our yard until the day that he died
  • he wanted my mother, my brother, my sister and me
  • to grow up and live happy in the land of the free

  • Now this Nation that I love has fallen under attack
  • a mighty sucker punch came flyin' in from somewhere in the back
  • soon as we could see clearly through our big black eye
  • man we lit up your world like the Fourth of July

  • And Uncle Sam put your name at the top of his list
  • and the Statue of Liberty started shaking her fist
  • and the Eagle will fly and there is going to be hell
  • when you hear Mother Freedom start ringin' her bell
  • and it'll feel like the whole wide world is raining down on you
  • brought to you courtesy of the Red, White and Blue

Verse 2:
  • Justice will be served
  • and the battle will rage
  • this big dog will fight
  • when you rattle his cage
  • you'll be sorry you messed with the US of A
  • 'cuz we'll put a boot in your @$$
  • it's the American way
Repeat Chorus

Next Song, American Soldier:

Verse 1:
  • 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 out 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
  • I just do it anyway
  • Providing for our futures
  • my responsibility
  • yeah I'm real good under pressure
  • being all that I can be
  • I can't call in sick on Monday when the weekend's been to strong
  • I just work straight on through the holidays
  • sometimes all night long
  • you can bet that I stand ready
  • when the wolf cries at the door
  • yeah I'm solid and I'm steady
  • and I'm true right down to the core
  • And I will always do my duty no matter what the price
  • I've counted up the costs
  • I know the sacrifice
  • Oh and I don't wanna die for you
  • but if dying's asked of me
  • I'll bear the cross with honor
  • 'cuz 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 Soldier
Repeat Chorus

Thanks for sharing the songs, Jesse. You know how out of it I am about recent songs, so you probably know I haven't heard either one of these! I will certainly make a point to hear the music now! It's nice to have you back in communication, at least with your blog -- a huge help to us far away folk who love you. :)

Hi Jesse:

Both songs have terrific lyrics. We
can see why these songs are inspirational to you. We have never
heard them, but will sure try to in
the future. Thanks for sharing the
songs and that you listen to them
before missions. We love you Jes.
Keep safe. God is with you.

I love both those songs Jesse and whenever I hear them I think of you! Stay safe and crank the music up loud before those missions. I love you brother!
