From the recording for Karrie
Written by: Eddie Russell
You know who you are. I don't have to say your name. But I would like to thank you for the sacrifice you made. A pair of combat boots ..in a closet tucked away is all that you have left ..for the price you had to pay.
Chorus: once a soldier.. always a hero every man and woman.. who fought for Uncle Sam deserves a golden medal.. and a pedestal on high. For those of you still living and for those who had to die once a Soldier always a hero.
Yes I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I don't believe in war but the war you didn't start. You only did your duty, your patriotic call. America's true hero and I thank you one and all. ©2003 Eddie Russell/Mark Brine Music (BMI)
