lyrics

I'm A Soldier
Palermo Deschamps / Gary Nicholson / Darrell Scott

To go where no one would dare to go
And do those things that no one would dare to do
Do not expect anyone to volunteer for but I will go there
I will go there because I am a soldier

I am a soldier I will go there
I will fight for the freedom of all men
I'm a soldier I will go there
I’m your father mother sister brother friend
I’m the one you want to be there
For your children for your country till the end
I'm a soldier I will go there
Count on me again again and again till the end

In the heat of battle or in the cool of peace
Rest assured I have your back no matter what it is
In the light of day in the dark of night
Don't you worry I’m ready for the fight

I'm a soldier I will go there
I will fight for the freedom of all men
I'm a soldier I will go there
I’m your father mother sister brother friend
I’m the one you want to be there for you
For your children for your country till the end
I'm a soldier I will go there
You can count on me again and again and again

I’m the one you want to be there for your children for your country amen I'm a soldier I will go there
I will fight for the freedom of all women and men
I'm a soldier I will go there
I’m your father mother sister brother friend
I’m the one you want to be there
For your children for your country amen

I'm a soldier I will go there
You can count on me again and again and again till the end
I'm a soldier
I'm a soldier
