I'm just tryin' to be a father
Raise a dauther and a son
Be a lover to their mother
Everything to everyone
Up and at em bright and early
I'm all busness in my suit
Ya I'm dressed up for sucsess
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
Ya I'm real good on the pressure
Bein all that I can be

I can't call in sick on mondays when the weekends been too strong
I just work straight through the hollidays
Sometimes all night long
You can bet that I stand ready
When the wolf growles 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 sacrafice
Oh and I don't want to die for you
But if dyin's askin 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 my sisters
I will proudly take a stand
When liberty's in jeapordy
I will always do what's right
I'm out here on the front line
Sleep in peace tonight
American Soldier
I'm an american soldier

Ya an american soldier
An american
Beside my brothers and my sisters
I will proudly take a stand
When liberty's in jeapordy
I will always do what's 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
