This song is pretty easy to play. Just the key of E. He actually picks
the chords out in the song, but here ya go.
I'm just trying to be a father. Raise a daughter and a son.
Be a lover to thier mother, and everything to everyone.
Up and at em bright and early, I'm all buisness in my suit.
Yeah I'm dressed up for success, from my head down to my boots.
I don't do it for the money, there bills that I can't pay.
I don't do it for the glory, I just do it anyway.
Providing for our futures, my responsibility.
Yeah I'm real good under pressure, being all that I can be.

I can't call in sick on monday when the weekend's been to strong.
I just work straight through the hollidays, sometimes all night long.
And you can be that I stand ready, when the wolf growls at the door.
Hey I'm solid. Hey I'm steady. Hey I'm true down to the oore.
And I will always do my duties no matter what the price.
I've counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice.
Oh and I don't want to die for you, but if dying's asked of me.
I'll bear that cross with honor, 'cause freedom don't come free.
I'm an American Soldier, I'm an American
Beside my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand.
When liberty's in jeopardy, I will always do what's right.
I'm out here on the front line. Sleep in peace tonight.

American Soldier, I'm an American Soldier
