A Child For Freedom

A child have I for the family tree
A child have I sitting on my knee

A child have I tall and straight
A child have I to love and appreciate

A child have I to sacrifice
A child have I to pay the price

A child have I for Americas needs
A child have I for heroic deeds

A child have I for freedoms call
A child have I to fight and fall

A child have I no more than another
A child have I for the flag to cover

A child have I for freedom
