lyrics

True Blue
Kimberly Buffington
Geoff Thurman

He tells you he's an ordinary guy
He's on the clock each day from nine to five
His kids race down the sidewalk just to meet
The man who swept their mama off her feet

Off to work like every day before
Unaware of what would be in store
And destiny for two was carved that neither knew
Only one could tell the tale forevermore

The blood of the hero runs true blue
His heart knows to do what he must do
His bravery shows what it means to be
A native son in the land of the free
Part of a courageous chosen few
The blood of the hero runs true blue

A stubborn soul determined not to fail
Through his sacrifice love will prevail
And counting every cost he seeks to save the lost
Protecting those who walk on freedom’s trail

The blood of the hero runs true blue
His heart knows to do what he must do
His bravery shows what it means to be
A native son in the land of the free
Part of a courageous chosen few
The blood of the hero runs true blue

Like many who have gone before
Whose honor makes us strive for more
They champion the choice to pay the price
Then they pay the price

The blood of the hero runs true blue
His heart knows to do what he must do
His bravery shows what it means to be
A native son in the land of the free
Part of a courageous chosen few
The blood of the hero runs true blue
