I never wed and never owned
A house or truck or car;
I loved this land, the greatest land
That sits beneath the stars.
War was declared, the call went out
For strong young men, so I
Weighed pros and cons, and right and wrong,
I took a bullet in the heart
While running through the flames;
I paid the price, life sacrifice,
And you don’t know my name.
Remember me when you are blessed,
When troubles turn you blue;
Remember me, remember me,
I gave my life for you.
