Lyrics:

Verse 1

It was a hot sunny day in Fort Hood
I got a call like I knew I would
There's trouble brewing in a foreign land
They need us to come lend a helping hand

I gathered my gear and said goodbye to my spouse
With a tear in my eye I walked out of my house
Off to the airfield and got on a plane
Wondering if I'd ever see my son again.

Chorus (repeat 2x)

I am the Guardian I answer my country's call
To keep my country safe I stand on a wall
On a wall so you can sleep at night
But at the end of the day I know my country will treat me right

Verse 2

For six long months we stayed and stayed
We knew it would be tough, many dues to be paid
War is mostly boredom with some terror thrown in
But you never know what will happen until the fighting begins

We missed our families and we missed our wives
We couldn't wait to get on with our lives
We gave blood, sweat, and tears to the gods of war
But we never forgot what we were fighting for

Chorus (repeat 2x)

We are the Guardians we answer our country's call
To keep our country safe we stand on a wall
On a wall so you can sleep at night
But at the end of the day we know our country will treat us right
