Johnny Cash Ballad Of The Green Beret Lyrics

Last updated: 03/10/2008 11:00:00 AM

Fighting soldiers from the sky,
Fearless men, Who jump and die.
Men who mean, Just what they say.
The brave men, Of the Green Beret

Silver wings upon their chest,
These are men, America's best.
One Hundred men Will test today,
But only three, Win the Green Beret.

Trained to live off nature's land,
Trained in combat, hand to hand.
Men who fight by night and day,
Courage pique, From the Green Beret.

Silver wings Upon their chest,
These are men, America's best.
One hundred men will test today,
But only three win the green beret

Back at home a young wife waits,
Her Green Beret has met his fate.
he has died for those oppressed,
Leaving her his last request

Put silver wings On my son's chest,
Make him one of America's best.
He'll be a man they'll test one day.
Have him win, the Green Beret.
