AMERICAN HERO

Into the cold and solemn day, the soldier marches
Eyes to the left and right along and
Scouts for enemy forces
Onto the dark and restless seas, the sailor launches
Eyes to the horizon and skies above and
Seeks for enemy bombardments
Into the heavens and clouds above, the airman soaring
Eyes to the vast expanse above and
Hunts for enemy air strikes

Warriors all and heroes too
Banded by duty and brotherhood
Love of country; faithfully bound
Upholding the Rights of the True

Into the cold and solemn day, a citizen marches
Eyes to the left and right along and
Scouts for the forgotten soldier
Onto the dark and restless seas, the traveler launches
Eyes to the horizon and skies above and
Awaits the return of the coffins
Into the heavens and clouds above, the warrior soaring
Eyes closed in death from battle lost and
Comes home to his heroes welcome

Warriors all and heroes too
Banded by duty and brotherhood
Love of country; faithfully bound
Upholding the Rights of the True

Into the cold and solemn day, America marches
Eyes to the left and right along and
Never forgets her HEROES
Onto the dark and restless seas, America launches
Eyes to the horizon and skies above and
Thanks God for their SACRIFICES
Into the heavens and clouds above, America soaring
Eyes to the future with heads held high and
Saved by our blessed MILITARY!

Warriors all and heroes too
Banded by duty and brotherhood
Love of country; faithfully bound
Upholding the Rights of the True
