​Boots On The Ground

This song is by John Parr and appears on the album The Mission (2012).

When these boots hit the ground
When these boots hit the ground
82nd loud and proud
82nd loud and proud
If you ask us yes we can
If you ask us yes we can
In the air and on the land
In the air and on the land

Double A
Double A
Double A
Double A
All American

We caught General Patton's eye
We caught General Patton's eye
Guard of honor marching by
Guard of honor marching by
When these boots hit the ground
When these boots hit the ground
82nd loud and proud
82nd loud and proud

Double A
Double A
Double A
Double A
All the way
All the way
All the way
All American

In World War 2
The 82nd served at the Battle of the Bulge
When Hitler tried to attack through the Arden
It was his last gamble in the west
PFC Martin said to a Sergeant
In a retreating tank destroyer
Put your vehicle behind me sir
I am the 82nd Airborne
And this is as far as those jerks are going

Defeat the enemy
Preserve the peace
And freedom for our nation
Yeah
And get back home
Just get back home
To our loved ones

When these boots hit the ground
When these boots hit the ground
82nd loud and proud
82nd loud and proud
If you ask us yes we can
If you ask us yes we can
In the air and on the land
In the air and on the land

Yeah
Double A
Yeah
Double A
Yeah
Double A
Yeah
Double A
Yeah
Double A
Yeah
All the way
Yeah
Double A
Yeah
All the way

Don't mess with The 82nd
