Ballad of the Green Berets (Barry Saddler) Fighting soldiers from the sky Fearless men who jump and die, Men who mean just what they say. The brave men of the Green Beret. cho: Silver wings upon their chests, These are men, America's best. 100 men we'll test today And only three win the Green Beret. Trained to live off nature's land Trained to combat hand to hand Men who fight by night and day Courage take from the Green Beret. Back at home a young wife waits Her Green Beret has met his fate He has died for those oppressed Leaving her this last request: last cho: Put silver wings on my son's chest Make him one of America's best He'll be a man they'll test one day Have him win the Green Beret.
