Veterans of the USA


we haven't forgot
the price you have paid
you've given us the freedom
that we enjoy today
and everyday i thank my God
for sending those like you
who cared for the future
the dreams of me and you

red is for the blood
blue is for the bruise
the white is for the eyes
who fought for me and you
so we lift our hearts today
filled with gratitude and praise
for the veterans of the USA

we thank the families
who gave their precious gift
the cause is greater than
all your fears
and when the flag waves high
our hearts are filled with pride
you're the reason America's still alive
