Memorial Day Album

Every Breath I Breathe   (music sample)

by The Hippy Coyote
from the album: Memorial Day Album by American Zen

C Riff

Am - E - Bm
F# - D - C#
Bridge: Bm - C - Am - B
Solo G - C#

I am Lakota -- born strong and brave
Proudly I serve and Nobly I save
The lives of my country, my family, my nation
This is my chance to prove my creation

I give thanks for each step I make
I give thanks for each breath I take
Thanks to Great Grandfather -- my first bite is given back
In appreciation for all I am given -- or that I lack

SOLO:

Because the Creator has placed me here
Along with the blacks, browns, and queer
My job and my duty are the measure of my life
If I survive -- I will find a wife

I am a man -- a warrior, a saint
I suffer and sweat without a single complaint
Every breath I breathe -- I thank God for
Every Breath I breathe - is another chance to score

BRIDGE:
The targets of my future -- I've been assigned
Notches on my gun -- I won't fall behind
Protecting my brothers -- protecting my friends
My country, my honor -- all I defend

For every man must prove his worth
Facing Death -- our very last friend
Justifying all I've been given from this Earth
Thankful and protective to the very, very end

Some may say that war is wrong
They sing their pitiful anti-war song
Let them whine and wail like women crying
They would never survive in this killing and dying

Where Death is a Ghost -- watching over me
There is no hurry -- there is no plan
A man must earn his right to be free
Only facing death -- will a boy become a man

END SOLO
