BY CHOICE A MARINE
© 2007 Doug Brzak

My grandpa worked the dirt, grandma raised the kids
A December morn in forty-one changed everything they did
From the hills of West Virginia to the Phillipines
American by birth and by choice a Marine

A chip off the old block it came as no surprise
When Daddy left my mom and me to fly through foreign skies
Crew-chief and loadmaster on a C-117
American by birth and by choice a Marine

No one really to wants go and they sure don't want to die
With a picture in their mind framed by a clear blue sky
The symbol of the land they love you know what I mean
American by birth and by choice a Marine

I've been there and back, I may have to go again
I'll do so proudly for my country, family and friends
Sacrifice and service, just a part of my routine
American by birth and by choice a Marine

No one really wants to go and they sure don't want to die
With a picture in their mind framed by a clear blue sky
The symbol of the land they love you know what I mean
American by birth and by choice a Marine

Well my grandpa lies at Arlington and daddy's in Mt. Rest
and today my daughter called to say she passed her PT test

No one really wants to go and they sure don't want to die
With a picture in their mind framed by a clear blue sky
The symbol of the land they love you know what I mean
American by birth and by choice a Marine

No one really wants to go and they sure don't want to die
