“American Soldier” was a No. 1 hit for Toby Keith in 2003. The song is about a soldier who is headed off to war, willing to take a stand and fight for freedom. Keith wrote the song after a USO tour in support of American troops.

I’m an American soldier, an American,

Beside my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand,

When liberty’s in jeopardy I will always do what’s right,

I’m out here on the front lines. Sleep in peace tonight.

American soldier, I’m an American soldier
