Today there will be flags and gunfire
In the cemetery at the edge of town
And on this day America will cry
As we lay a Hero in the ground

A flag draped coffin will be honored
As the guns say our final goodbye
America knows her shores will be protected
But for today she must bow her head and cry

He gave all in this war on terror
And he didn’t complain one bit… we heard
His wife say he cried like a baby
On the day America was hit

He had held her close as he kissed her
Then wiped the tears from his burning eyes
He whispered you’ll be safe here at home my love
But too many innocent people have died

Now a flag draped coffin will be honored
As the guns say our final goodbye
America knows her shores will be protected
But for today she must bow her head and cry

America is hated for what she stands for
But it’s the land where everyone wants to go
And her warriors are ready to protect her rights
And take the fight wherever it must go… so

We’ll fight him in the sand and the mountains
And put a stop to his hateful gore
We must take this fight to his homeland
For it was he that knocked on our door

Yes, evil invited heroes to the gunfight the day
He knocked on America’s door
