    I’m just tryin’ to be a father, raise a daughter and a son
    Be a lover to their mother, everythin’ 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 money, there’s bills I that I can’t pay
    I don’t do it for the glory, I just do it anyway
    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 Mondays when the weekend’s been too 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 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 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 and American, Soldier.

    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 and American, an American, an American, Soldier.

    Toby Keith. I don't know if those lyrics are exact, I pulled them off some cheesy lyrics site.

    Good song. I just heard it yesterday on my buddies' cd.

    Im not much of a keith fan, even his patriotic songs, but he gets a HUGE thumbs up for his unwavering support of the troops and their familys. Gotta love it when you see someone in "pop culture" who isn't a hardcore leftwing hollywood nutball.

    I think I was at the show where he recorded them... We saw him last summer or the summer before at Jones Beach on Long Island, he did a couple "Bus songs". I was blasting Weed with Willie in my office after the 5 o clock whistle tonight... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I do NOT have a copy of the CD... Just in case DeWalt and the RIAA are watching this thread...
