I work hard for you

Put in mornings, days and nights,

I'm a sworn Police Officer through and through

I wore my shield proudly uopn my chest

Holstered my weapon

Shined my boots

And tightly secured my vest

The hours were long and the pay checks small,

But for the friends I have made

I would change nothing at all....

I never changed the world

Now we both know this is true

But I never thought this would happen Lord

I was one of the brave in blue

I lay here

And the sirens sound so loud

How could this be

I wasn't suppose to go like this

He shouldnt have got the drop on me

When you fold my flag

and hand it to my wife

Tell her I died heroically

Tell her I lived a good life

I always upheld the law

Acted fairly without prejudice

But now as I go Lord

A ask you promise me this

Tell my girl her Daddy is proud

Allow her to reach the top

So I can rest peacefully

Knowing she never became a cop.
