Ciara Rose Drexler's touching song, “Civilian Song”, and its video features the community of Alexandria, MN and surrounding towns, who recently met at the local high school football field to help cheer and sing for the filming of it . . . all in support of the men and women who serve and have served in the military to protect our beloved America and freedom.
Verse 1 To the soldier who's been gone for so long We've been here, cheering you on With our civilian's song
Never once has this been in vain We will never forget the names Of all of those who freely gave For freedom's cause
Chorus 1 Oh the things you must have seen The things you must have done The things you must have lost And all the battle's you have won For such a heavy price We just want to say Thank you for the sacrifice
Verse 2 To the soldier far from home Whose fearless strength carries on May these words keep you strong In our civilian's song (Chorus1)
Bridge 1 So we will stand up Everybody say it louder Everybody say it prouder God Bless the USA So we will stand up Everybody say it louder Everybody say it prouder I love the USA (Instrumental, Chorus 2)
Chorus 2 Oh the things you must have seen The things you must have done The things you must have lost And all the battle's you have won All for freedom's cause We just want to say Thank you for it all
Bridge 2 In the cold and in the night And in the warmth of the bright sunlight Remember this as you march on We stand for you in our civilian's song
