US Soldier
My country, right or wrong, boys
my country, right or wrong
I only do my duty
as to war I march along

"I fought for God and country"
the nazi soldier said
"I only do my duty
for this I killed and bled"

My country, right or wrong, boys
my country, right or wrong
I only do my duty
as to war I march along

"I fight for God and country"
the U.S. soldiers say
I (we) only do my (our) duty
for God and L.B.J.

My country, right or wrong, boys
my country, right or wrong
I only do my duty
as to war I march along

Will history books record the fact
they sang the same old song
The Nazi and Good G.I. Joe
"My country right or wrong"

(Variant:)
"I fight for God and country"
says the doughboy (draftee) gun in hand
"I only do my duty
for God and native land."
