Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


American Soldier  Toby Keith

[A]I'm just trying to be a father, raise a daughter and a son
Be a lo[E]ver to their mother, e[Esus]verything to every[E]one
Up and at 'em[D] bright and early, I'm all business in my suit
Yea [Esus]I'm dressed up for s[E]uccess, from my [Esus]head down to my b[E]oots
I don't[A] do it for the money, there's bills that I can't pay
I don't [E]do it for the glory, I just[Esus] do it any[E]way
Prov[D]iding for our future's, my responsibility
[Esus]Yea I'm real good under [E]pressure, being[Esus] all that I can [E]be

And I can't c[A]all in sick on Mondays, when the weekends been too
I just [E]work straight through the holidays, and [Esus]sometimes all night [E]long
You can [D]bet that I stand ready, when the wolf growls at the door
Hey, I'm [Esus]solid, hey I'm s[E]teady, hey I'm [Esus]true down to the c[E]ore

And I will a[A]lways do my duty no matter what the price
I've co[E]unted up the cost, I [Esus]know the sacri[E]fice
Oh, and I[D] don't want to die for you, but if dyin's asked of me
I'll [Esus]bear that cross with h[E]onor, cause [Esus]freedom don't come[E] free
CHORUS:
I'm an A[A]merican soldier, and American
Beside my br[F#m]others and my sisters, I will proudly take a stand
When li[D]berty's in jeopardy, I will always do what's right
I'm o[A]ut here on the front lines, sl[B]eep in peace tonight
Ameri[D]can soldier,[E] I'm an Am[A]erican soldier

F#m | D | E
