Stars and bars

Stars and bars
Stars and Stripes
Bloody wars
And countless nights
We fight our way
From dusk till dawn
dawn to dusk
We carry on
Fair seas
And homeward winds
Bloodstained hands
And counted sins
Holding our wives
No peace at night
Praying God
To take the fright
With the memories
From our mind
We just want it
All behind
We just wanted
Our home free
A superhuman task
For you and me
We did what we had to
In that far off land
We tried to leave the blood
In that far off sand
It stuck to our boots
And under our skin
We may never sleep
Peacefully again
