The Veteran

The Veteran

The Veteran

Intro

This one, goes out to all, who served your country long and proud
The ones who wanted to, but never could shout out loud

Verse 1

To my country
I gave the best years of my life
I love my country
I was as loyal to you as I was to my wife

I went to war just for you
So you could sleep at night
I kept the bad men far away from you
I fought the good fight

I did it all for you

Chorus 1

They say I am a veteran for life
That means I fought for you
The blood, the years and the strife
I forgot them all for you

They say I am a veteran for life
That means I served for you
All those lost years of my life
I gave them all to you

Verse 2

For my country
I gave the best I had and could
For my country
I did everything a soldier would

I went far away for you
So you could stay unafraid
I kept my promise to America for you
I don’t regret the price I paid

I did it all for you

Chorus 2

They say I am a veteran for life
That means I fought for you
The blood, the years and the strife
I forgot them all for you

They say I am a veteran for life
That means I served for you
All those lost years of my life
I gave them all to you

Bridge

I heard the sound of a shot
My chest got burning hot
I watched the bright day
Slowly fade away

Back at home the flags unfold
A long procession down the road
21 guns a hero’s end
There goes another veteran

Yeah!

New Chorus

I was a veteran for life

I did it for you
I fought for you
I served for you
I bled for you
I killed for you
I died for you

Extro

They say I am a veteran
That means I fought for you

They say I was a veteran
That means I died for you
