"Semper Fi" by Trace Adkins

He sat in that long line of barber chairs,
And the Sargent asked him-son would you like to keep your hair?
He said ‘Yes sir’ as he heard those clippers buzzin hum.
And the Sargent said -well hold out your hands cuz here it comes.

Semper Fi, do or die.
So gung-ho to go and pay the price.
Heres to Leathernecks, Devil Dogs, and Jarheads.
And Parris Island in July-Semper Fi.

I sleep in my bed instead of a foxhole.
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 overseas.

Semper Fi, do or die.
So gung-ho to go and pay the price.
Heres to Leathernecks, Devil Dogs, and Jarheads.
And Parris Island in July-Semper Fi.

For the few that wear the dress Blues,
Hack up good high and tight.
Who are proud to be the first ones in the fight,
Semper Fi.

Semper Fi, do or die.
So gung-ho to go and pay the price.
Heres to Leathernecks, Devil Dogs, and Jarheads.
And Parris Island in July,
Never leave a man behind.
A Marine, a Marine for life,
Semper Fi.
