Tennessee Highway Patrol

The Brave Men In Green

On lonely highways late at night
you answer a call without any fright
You go out of your way to protect us
and it seems all we do is sit back and fuss
You are the men who put your lives on the line
the men who can never say" I'll be fine"
You reassure us when something goes wrong
and you always try to help us to all get along
You are the ones so many people hate
but when they are in trouble, they pray that you aren't too late
You are the ones that wear those flat rimmed hats
and you sadly have to put up with a lot of our crap
Many children look up to you as a hero
but a lot of adults rate you as a zero
through all of these sad things you still stand proud and tall
you are the brave people who enforce the law
You are the finest of your state
and now that you have made it, you realize it was worth the wait
Although people call you snobby, greedy, stupid, and mean
Rest assure I will always know you as, The Brave Men In Green.
