Private Wilson White Written and recorded by Marty Robbins
C F C Private Wilson White America is proud tonight G7 C Proud to claim you for their hero Private White
F On a battlefield one day in a land so far away G7 C Mid the rattle of machine guns in the dawn's first golden light F Twenty men lay close to death nineteen of them held their breath G7 C While one volunteered to save them volunteered to give his life
F Nineteen lives he meant to save not one backward glance he gave G7 C As he yelled for God and country through an open field he ran F But the enemy had seen and they understood his scheme G7 C And the fire from their machine guns knocked the rifle from his hands
F Seven bullets found their mark seven bullets near the heart G7 C And the force of seven bullets knocked the soldier to the ground F But his promise he must keep and he staggered to his feet G7 C Ran toward the four machine guns that pinned the soldiers down
F Bullets flyin' everywhere smoke and gunfire filled the air G7 C Onward ran the wounded soldier to keep the vow he made F Nearly dead but deep within was the strength to pull the pin G7 C As he yelled I died for freedom he threw the hand grenade
