Lyrics
Well this is the story
Of a young man who answered the call
To fight fear and terror
In a world where it touches us all
Well he fought with pride
And he gave up his life
He left behind two little kids and a wife
So the next time you sing these words
Keep him in mind

Oh we stand on guard for thee
They`re not just the words that they say
They`re words that the mean
So tonight when you pray on your knees
Say a prayer for the sons and the daughters
Of the free

Well sometimes in this world
We forget how we get what we`ve got
And all the blood spent on freedom
To some folk is quickly forgot
Oh they`d rather talk until nothing gets done
But sometimes you gotta fight for rights to be won
Thank god for the special few who can get the job done

Oh we stand on guard for thee

They`re not just the words that they say
They`re words that the mean
So tonight when you pray on your knees
Say a prayer for the sons and the daughters
Of the free

Well now take off your hat
And put your hand on your heart
Don`t take your eyes off the flag
And the next time you sing these beautiful words
Think of the ultimate price
That my friend paid

Oh we stand on guard for thee
They`re not just the words that they say
They`re words that the mean
So tonight when you pray on your knees
Say a prayer for the sons and the daughters
Of the free

Give a hug to the sisters and the brothers
Give your love to the fathers and mothers
Say a prayer for the sons and the daughters
Of the free

Well this is the story of a good man who answered the call
