Home Of The Brave

Home of The Brave

A women sits then begins to cry
Her husband’s gone, she’s alone tonight
With two little children and one on the way
She’s askin’ God to help her make it through another day
She chose this life
As a soldier’s wife
So she never asks why
She just waves that flag high

She’s brave as they come
And she’ll survive
Fightin’ to keep her dreams alive
With that kind of strength
That’s American-made
She knows sacrifice is the cost of freedom
Gives everything ’cause she believes in
Doin’ what’s right
It’s worth the price
Every time she makes it through another day
She proves this country’s not just land of the free
It’s home of the brave

A farmer stares across his land
Then looks down at his calloused hands
For three generations they’ve worked on this farm
If the crops don’t come through now
It could all be gone
But he holds his dream
As his destiny
He will not retreat
Because his pride runs deep

He’s as brave as they come
And he’ll survive
Fightin’ to keep his dreams alive
With that kind of strength
That’s American-made
He knows sacrifice is the cost of freedom
Gives everything ’cause he believes in
Doin’ what’s right
It’s worth the price
Every time he makes it through another day
He proves this country’s not just land of the free
It’s home of the brave

It’s the single dad who just lost his job
It’s the cancer survivor beatin’ the odds
It’s the face of America
Lookin’ brave in America

We’re brave as they come
And we’ll survive
We’re fightin’ to keep our dreams alive
With that kind of strength
That’s American-made
We know sacrifice is the cost of freedom
Give everything ’cause we believe in
Doin’ what’s right
It’s worth the price
Every time we make it through another day
We prove this country’s not just land of the free
It’s home of the brave

Home of the brave
