American Hero

VERSE 1:
Daddy was a good man
Taught me wrong from right
Didn’t have all the answers
But knew God’s grace would get us by
He’d come home late from work
Set me on his knee
An’ say, “Son love your country, and
Protect your family.”

PRE CHORUS:
He charged burning buildings
Fought the war in 73
And to me he represents
All I want to be

CHORUS:
An American HERO
Standing strong in his faith
Knows what he believes in
Don’t need to show him the way
An American hero
Honest and true
An American hero
Red, white, and blue for me and you

VERSE 2:
Mama went to work each day
Walked the floor in nurses white
Healing those who came her way
Helping patients with a friendly smile
She showed her compassion
With her gentle touch
Her life was a picture
Painted with her love

PRECHORUS:
Dead on her feet
And never looked for sympathy
And to me she represents
All I want to be

CHORUS:
An American HERO
Standing strong in her faith
Knows what she believes in
Don’t need to show her the way

An American hero
Honest and true
An American hero
Red, white, and blue for me and you

BRIDGE:
They say they’re hard to find
But I disagree
I see so many American Heroes
Fighting for you and me

CHORUS:
You’re An American HERO
Standing strong in your faith
You know what you believe in
Don’t need to show you the way
An American hero
Honest and true
An American hero
Red, white, and blue for me and you
