American Soldier Lyrics - Toby Keith
Review The Song (191)
I'm just trying to be a father,
Raise a daughter and a son,
Be a lover to their mother,
Everything to everyone.
Up and at 'em bright and early,
I'm all business 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's 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,
And I can't call in sick on Mondays when the weekend's been too strong,
I just work straight through the holidays,
And sometimes all night long.
You can bet 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 core,
And I will always do my duty, 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 an honor,
'Cause freedom don't come free.
I'm an American Soldier, an American,
Beside my Brothers and my Sisters I will proudly take a stand.
When liberty's in jeopardy I'll always do what's right.
I'm out here on the front lines, sleep in peace tonight.
I'm an American Soldier.
Yeah, an American Soldier,
Beside my Brothers and my Sisters I will proudly take a stand,
When liberty's in jeopardy I'll always do what's right,
I'm out here on the front lines, so sleep in peace tonight.
I'm an American,
Writer: Toby Keith/Chuck Cannon

You are such an asshole for saying that about the men and women who protect this country while you sit on your ass an post shit like this. Someone otta take you out back an shoot you like a rabid dog. You haven't been where they have seen what they've had to an quite frankly you don't have the balls to you worthless peace of trash.

American Soldier is a joke | Reviewer: Jon Reposa | 1/1/14
Everyone wants to be a hero. Unfortunately, American soldiers are not heroes. They join the Army because they are ignorant losers who can not find a real job. They join for the chance to escape their responsibilities, and to ho around and cheat on their wives and family. That truth is kind of ugly, isn't it. So lets just pretend they are all heroes, then we don't have to think about what they are really doing.
A family who serves | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/21/13
My uncle fought in the middle east and is being deployed again, my other late uncle fought in vietnam, and my grandpa fought in ww2....
you see i didnt have a dad i had a father (any guy can be a father but it takes a special person to be a dad)and my grandpa was the only guy in my family close to where we live, after ww2 and all the years of smokeing/chewing made him have a lot of pain, but even though he was in pain he never let me see it and tried to make me as happy as possible and be there when ever he could.
he flew a flag by his house past the day that he died (grandma flew it past then) and even though he needed a scooter to move around, he still rose for the national anthem.... when ever i hear this song it reminds me of one of the best soldiers who ever lived..... RIP Verdin (Bud) Liddel
proud army mom | Reviewer: Eleanor | 4/6/13
I'm a very proud Army Mom! I had this song downloaded on my cellphone as ringtone for my son who is in the service. I love this song, every word describes the sacrifices that our soldiers endure, it makes me cry... My prayers goes to all the dedicated Soldiers serving to fight for our freedom! GO ARMY! God bless you all and your family!
proud US Army neice | Reviewer: anonymous | 11/12/12
This song is important to me because I have an uncle who was an American soldier and he selflessly took an extra tour in afghanistan so his brother, not my dad but another uncle, wouldn't have to take one. This song describes basically ever American Soldier and I love it. I cried the first time I heard it. We really don't think about I guess but all those men and women who fight for our freedom put their lives on the line everyday and yet sometimes we think that oh no mt boyfriend (or girlfriend) just broke up with me now i'm gonna die, when in reality we have it made here in America in our nice pretty little houses. This song is a great reminder of that. Good job Toby! And i want to shout out to all those men and women out there fighting for out freedom and say thanks, we owe it all to you!!!
American soldiers | Reviewer: Esai Jimenez | 7/6/12
I'm 14 and both my grandfathers fought in the Vietnam War. One of them died of cancer when I was 6. I miss him everyday of my life. My uncle was in the Marine corps. but was never deployed. I want to follow in their footsteps and serve America to keep her safe and free. My best friend lost his brother in afganistan a few months ago. I want to give out a big thanks to all the men and women who risk their lives for our freedom. God bless America! Thank you
This one hit home for me. | Reviewer: SFC Fred Hrbek (Ret.) | 7/4/12
This song described me to the T. I was in Iraq from 1/5/2003-3/19/2004. My daughter was crippled by arthritis and was in a wheelchair. My son was acting out because I was gone. Everyday I would wake up and have to focus on the mission at hand. Many things were not told to me when I called home, but when I finally got home, I was able to see my daughter walk for the first time in many months.
About a week after returning, I heard "American Soldier". I quietly sat in my garage and cried. This song had brought out many emotions from my tour that I couldn't hold it in. Toby, you will never know what this song meant to me because it was exactly how I felt. Thanks

To proud soldier | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/23/11
Thank you for you service and dont worry about the haters. There will always be those super left wing people that just get there kicks off of dissing whatever they are told to by the left wing media. Just know that there are people that cut for you and are incredibly proude of you for your service i couldnt imagine being away from my family and risking my life and also missing my childs birth for serving my country. I dont have a child but just remember you are fighting for my neices freedom to walk down the road without having to worry about being attacked for just wanting to live there lives. Words cannot express the appreciation for what you are doing for this country and the lives you are saving. As Bill O'reily says you are a true patriat for what you are doing. I would do it myself but they wont let me do it because of my past life that i left behind. But if i could i would be right there by your side fighting for americas freedom. and for all those people that say the war doesnt do anything... when is the last time we had a major terrorist attack in the states. You are doing an amazing thing and i hope you the best. Be careful i know a 20 year old that just lost his life in Afganistan fighting for me and my family and i could not be more appreciative for the altimate sacrifice he gave for us, he is a true patriot keep it up and be careful you are in my prayers for real take care and come home same. best of luck and once again thank you for you service and your risk and for our country. God bless America. And to the person i just read hating on toby keith. That man has raised more money and sacrificed so much of his time with uso shows to support our troups and be there for them and he does not have to do it. Toby Keith is a true patriot so you need to stop hating on the man he is a great man that just wants to help in any way he can. God bless the USA!!!
