Here's a song for the ones
Who sacrifice so much
So that we can be free
In this country that we love

If you're proud of all you're given
Sing along, sing along
If you love the life we're livin',
Sing along, sing along

No, we haven't forgot
How we get what we got
All because of the proud and the few
So to every soldier standin',
Remember that we're singin' for you

For the choice that they made
For the million lives they saved
Lift your voice, loud and brave
Give thanks for the price they've paid

If you're proud of all you're given
Sing along, sing along
If you love the life we're livin',
Sing along, sing along

No, we haven't forgot
How we get what we got
All because of the proud and the few
So to every soldier standin',
Remember that we're singin' for you
Sing along, sing along
For the fightin' strong
Sing along, sing along
For the fightin' strong
Sing along

For the lost 'long the way
Though you did not fall in vain
Purple mountains, amber grain
Where you always will remain

If you're proud of all you're given
Sing along, sing along
If you love the life we're livin',
Sing along, sing along

If you're proud of all you're given
Sing along, sing along
If you love the life we're livin',
Sing along, sing along

No, we haven't forgot
How we get what we got
All because of the proud and the few
So to every soldier standin',
Remember that we're singin' for you
Yeah, to every soldier standin',
Remember that we're singin' for you

Song facts

Tom Gossin: "We were honored to be given the chance to perform for troops stationed in Europe and the Middle East and to visit the aircraft carriers USS Harry Truman and the USS Abraham Lincoln. We lived their life for two weeks, staying with the soldiers in their barracks, on the Navy ships, and on the aircraft carriers. We wanted to write a song about it to let them know how thankful we are, seeing the sacrifices they make and just say thank you. We wanted it to be a positive, uplifting song rather than a sad moment because we noticed that the soldiers we spent time with over there were so positive. To face that much adversity day after day and remain that positive, I thought, was really a beautiful thing."

Mike Gossin: "Tom and I come from a family where our grandfathers both served in World War II. One was in the Army and one was in the Navy, We also have cousins in the Army serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. We were so moved meeting the troops overseas. 'Soldier Song' is a tribute to all who serve our country."
