Trace Adkins — Semper Fi lyrics

He sat in that long line of Barber chairs
And the Sergeant asked him, Son, would you like to keep your hair?
He said yes sir, as he heard those clippers buzzing on
Sergeant said, well, hold out your hand, here it comes...

Semper Fi, Do or Die
So Gung-ho to go and pay the price
Here's to Leathernecks, Devil Dogs, and Jarheads
And Parris Island in July, Semper Fi
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/trace-adkins-semper-fi-lyrics.html ]
I sleep in my bed instead of a Fox Hole
I've never heard my boss tell me to lock and load
Ain't no bullet holes in the side of my SUV
Because the kid next door just shipped out over seas

Semper Fi, Do or Die
So Gung-ho to go and pay the price
Here's to Leathernecks, Devil Dogs, and Jarheads
And Parris Island in July, Semper Fi

For the few that wear the Dress Blues
With haircut High and Tight
Who are Proud to be the first ones in a fight
Semper Fi


Semper Fi, Do or Die
So Gung-ho to go and pay the price
Here's to Leathernecks, Devil Dogs, and Jarheads
And Parris Island in July,

Never leave a man behind...
A Marine, A Marine for Life
Semper Fi
