American Boy..a Song From the Heart

Updated on October 24, 2013
American boy
American boy
The wise shall lead
The wise shall lead
Free as birds in flight
Free as birds in flight
Freedom's' cost is great.
Freedom's' cost is great.
With every new day, freedom shall reign
With every new day, freedom shall reign


When Uncle Sam called me, I answered right away,

went up and joined the army, then drilled both night and day.

I gave my life for freedom and I meant just what I said,

many men before me fell, and for their country bled.


REFRAIN: I gave all for my country,I have one arm and leg,

But you're not going to see me out on a street to beg.

I'm too proud to take a handout, and too strong to just give in,

I'm a red blooded American boy, and I'm starting over again.


My father served his country well, way back in forty-two,

good men died to turn the tide, for folks like me and you.

They gave me some medals, then called me a hero, too,

but men who died were real heroes, for all that they did do.


REFRAIN: I gave all for my country,I have one arm and leg,

but you're not going to see me out on the street to beg.

I'm too proud to take a handout, too strong to just give in,

I'm a red blooded American boy, and I'm starting over again.


There's one thing you can count on, that's made this country great,

It's the courage of its people, and it's America's God given trait.

We right the wrongs, put down our foes, helping all those in need,

Around the world the people know, against all evil we will lead.


REFRAIN: I gave all for my country, I have one arm and leg,

but you're not going to see me out on the street to beg.

I'm too proud to take a handout, and too strong to just give in,

I'm a red blooded American boy, and I'm starting over again.


I'm a red blooded American boy, and I'm starting over again.

      Beautiful poem! I can't believe I'm the first one to comment here. I guess it's a slow night tonight on HP. Great job on this!
