This is the Story of Our Lives

Updated on April 7, 2017


The story of our history, not to be such a mystery,

From every corner we came, a life of simplicity.

We sailed from around the world, many places,

Settled in America, lived among all of the races.


Refrain:

One child is born, as a soldier dies,

These are the stories of our lives.

For one to live, then a soul must go,

That's the way it is, and for us to know.



We all fought for our freedom, this from the start,

Always first, then, of our lives to be such a part.

Some men have lived, as many others have died,

Each did their very best, did in all that they tried.


Refrain:

One child is born, as a soldier dies,

These are the stories of our lives.

For one to live, then a soul must go,

That's the way it is, and for us to know.




The Civil War came and so many lives were lost,

This countries gains were made at such a cost.

Babies lost their fathers, in battles from that war,

In a search for peace from shore to every shore.


Refrain:

One child is born, as a soldier dies,

these are the stories of our lives.

For one to live, then a soul must go,

That's the way it is, and for us to know.



Then came a time for the first world war,

Soldiers from all sides died by the score.

Perished in trenches, from bullets and gas,

Protecting our freedoms, was over at last.


Refrain"

One child is born, as a soldier dies,

These are the stories of our lives.

For one to live, then a soul must go,

That's the way it is, and for us to know.






When World War Two came upon the scene,

The times got rough, the story gets mean.

The enemy tried to take control of the world,

Until our flag was raised, our banner unfurled.


Refrain:

One child is born, as a soldier dies,

These are the stories of our lives.

For one to live, then a soul must go,

That's the way it is, and for us to know.




Asia and the Middle East, then foes, challenged us all,

Our country defended the masses, our enemy did fall.

We've brought peace around this globe, did it our way,

Saved the helpless, to give hope in this world, we pray.


Refrain:

One child is born, as a soldier dies,

These are the stories of our lives.

For one to live, then a soul must go,

That's the way it is, and for us to know.




Our flag of freedom still waves, does stand to say,

Our good hearts and our souls, are forever to stay.

While our defenders march, their courage all display,

Put lives on the line, showing care, come what may.


Refrain:

One child is born, as a soldier dies,

These are the stories of our lives.

For one to live, then a soul must go,

That's the way it is, and for us to know.


These are the stories of our lives,

The stories of our lives...


Let us all give thanks to our brave soldiers.
Let us all give thanks to our brave soldiers.
