America, the greatest nation on earth
And if asked, by America
I would send, this old bones
Back, to do battle again,-again

America, greatest nation on earth
And it is the old bones, that make it great
Our real veterans
Our real old veterans

America, the greatest nation on earth
And it is the old bones that make it great
Civil war vets
WW I vets

America, the greatest nation on earth
And it is the old bones that make it great
W W II
And the Korean conflict vets

America, the greatest nation on earth
And it is the old bones that make it great
Viet Nam vets
Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan

American, the greatest nation of earth
And if you ask these old bones,we’d do it all over agin
Abroad, in the air or in the sea
Or in my own back yard

And it is the old bones that make America great
Here, there or anywhere
And that’s why we are
The greatest nation on earth
