Boy grew up in Caroline
Tobacco farm on the mountainside
Played football for the high school team
Fell in love with Sally Jean
Heard the call of his Uncle Sam
Headed off to Vietnam
When he comes home gonna settle down
But somewhere, in a river
The soldier died for me

Navajo boy stares at the sky
Tired of the reservation life
He has hopes, he has dreams
Joins the United States Marines
Marine works hard, he pulls his weight
His people are proud, he's a hero they say
When he comes home, gonna be a great day
But somewhere, in a desert
The Marine died for me

[Chorus]
So I can live
In the land of free
Raise my kids
Live my dreams
There's a price
For liberty
Sacrifice for me

Punches that clock at a half past eight
Just like any other day
Brooklyn fireman callin' home
Gonna be late something big is going on
The world had changed in just one day
The devil himself had sent those planes
When he gets home gonna hold his wife
But somewhere, in a tower
The fireman died for me

[Chorus]

Long black wall
Fields of green
Pillar of fire
Distant beach
Cross of white
The hero dies
Sacrifice for me
