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 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 weekends 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 line
Sleep in peace tonight
American soldier, I'm an American soldier
Yeah, 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 line
So Sleep in peace tonight
American soldier, I'm an American
An American, an American soldier

Download and watch the touching music video that accompanies this song HERE.
The video, will set you back on your heels. Beautiful.
Would like to have seen the video. We don't have Real Player.
Some people do good AND make a profit. Buzz off, troll, and let us remember and honor our military, living and dead, in peace.
Hohhhhhhhh! What the HELL? Not today TROLL!
You're a jerk to say something like that.
He gives shows in Mosul and around Iraq. He goes to military bases. Go away!!!!!
Don't make me zot you.
Toby Keith frequently does free concerts for our military. Go back to pondering your genitals and listening to your new Ditzy Chick CD you maggot. Ringing the cash register one America-bashing at a time.
Already took care of the ZOT...............................
Musta let Johm Murtha out of his nursing home bed to play with the computer.
" Ringing the cash register one America-bashing at a time."
I'm standing. I'm applauding.
They died as Americas born
Spilled blood as they stormed foreign shores
They fought in a frigid Korea
These men who've been lost in our wars
They drowned in a far away sea
And baked on a hot desert sand
They fought in some forsaken jungles
They marched through a hell called Bataan
take time to be grateful
its time that we say
Its proper and right that we honor them all
They had selflessly given their lives and had answered the call
So now, it is left in our charge
we know whats right and wrong
And we must be prepared for a fight we must always be strong
Say a prayer for the sacrifice made
for heroes in our history
They fought with their last ounce of courage they knew freedom never is free
Toby Keith played a concert today in Mosul at FOB Marez for soldiers there - my son attended - and then stayed and posed for pictures with any and every soldier who wanted one. He also played a few concerts there the other day as well. He doesn't have to, he doesn't get payed to, and he doesn't bring the press along to publicize him doing it.
My Dad...about one month before Pearl Harbor.
Thanks for that link. Goosebumps:)
