America goes to war again
For, Liberty we’ll campaign
Thru all the land proclaim
LET blood not be shed in vain

Soldiers to arms we call
America will never fall
On God we’ll depend
Freedom we commend

Many died, as we wept
Life they should’ve kept
Freedom, for all is our cry
The world on us rely

To all Americans brave
Fight to the grave
Terror will never succeed
Liberty, must precede

Let them that died
In Heaven abide
Their honor we’ll keep
Freedom will never sleep

All generations of America
Shall always remember
The day American fought
As freedom they sought
