    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
