From the album MY AMERICA, VOL.1

A song about how much our beloved veterans so richly deserve all of God's blessings. As the song asks, if not for you (American veterans), what would we do? Where would we be today?

Verse 1

American Veteran, we owe so much to you.
You paid the price. You sacrificed
for the red, white and blue.
So today we praise the brave who raised
the flag and our hopes, too.
American Veteran, we pray may God bless you.

Verse 2.

You alone stood tall when duty called
to keep your country free.
You alone were there, despite your fear,
to fight for liberty.
You alone with pride stood side by side
your mates, so gallantly.
You alone who died, your names reside
in our nation's legacy.

Bridge

If not for you, what we do?
Where would we be today?
We will not forget our nation's debt
of gratitude to pay.
So again we say...

Verse 3.

American Veteran, we owe so much to you.
You paid the price. You sacrificed
for the red, white and blue.
So today we praise the brave who raised
the flag and our hopes, too.
American Veteran, we pray may God bless you.

Verse 4.

You're the finest of Americans.
We live free because of you.
Every dear beloved veteran,
we pray may God bless you.
God bless you.
