my heart drops but i’m proud lyrics – jim boyd

well i remember back when
i went to school
teacher said son don’t forget
that golden rule
were more important things
for me to find out
my heart drops but i’m proud
my dad spent twenty years in a uniform of blue
this air force indian man
wouldn’t tell us what he knew
now that he’s gone there’s things i’ll
never know about
my heart drops but i’m proud
ya my heart drops but i’m proud
chorus:
i can’t forget how they killed
john kennedy
i can’t forget what they did
at wounded knee
i’ve lived in two worlds
both wanting to be free
don’t try to tell me what
my country means to me
star spangled banner
and the sound of the drum
tell their own stories under the same sun
i love this country
but i some times have my doubts
my heart drops but i’m proud
ya my heart drops but i’m proud
