Proud to be an American

Lee Greenwood God Bless the U.S.A.

If tomorrow all the things were gone I'd worked for all my life, And I had to start again with just my children and my wife, I'd thank my lucky stars to be living here today, 'Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can't take that away.

I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free, And I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me, And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today, 'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota to the hills of Tennessee, Across the plains of Texas from sea to shining sea. From Detroit down to Houston and New York to L.A., There's pride in every American heart and it's time we stand and say:

I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free, And I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me, And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today, 'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A.


Where were you?

Verse: Where were you when the world stop turning, on that September day? Were you in the yard with your wife and children? Or working on some stage in L.A.? Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke, Rising against that blue sky? Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor? Or did you just sit down and cry? Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones? And pray for the ones who don't know? Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble? And sob for the ones left below? Did you burst out in pride for the red, white and blue? And the heroes who died just doin' what they do? Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer? And look at yourself and what really matters... Chorus: I'm just a singer of simple songs, I'm not a real political man. I watch CNN but I'm not sure I could Tell you the difference in Iraq and Iran. But I know Jesus and I talk to God, And I remember this from when I was young. Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us, And the greatest is love. Verse: Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day? Teaching a class full of innocent children? Or driving down some cold interstate? Did you feel guilty 'cause you're a survivor? In a crowded room did you feel alone? Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her? Did you dust off that Bible at home? Did you open your eyes, hope it never happened? And you close your eyes and not go to sleep? Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages? Or speak to some stranger on the street? Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow? Go out and buy you a gun? Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin' And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns? Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers? Stand in line and give your own blood? Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family? Thank God you had somebody to love.

American Girls And American Guys
We'll always stand up and salute, We'll always recognize, When we see Old Glory flyin', There's a lot of men dead, So we can sleep in peace at night When we lay down our head.
My daddy served in the army, Where he lost his right eye. But he flew a flag out in our yard Till the day that he died. He wanted my mother, My brother, My sister and me, To grow up and live happy In the land of the free. Now this nation that I love Has fallen under attack. A mighty sucker punch came flyin' in From somewhere in the back. Soon as we could see clearly  Through our big black eye Man, we lit up your world  Like the Fourth of July.
Hey Uncle Sam put your name At the top of his list. And the Statue of Liberty Started shakin' her fist. And the eagle will fly And there's gonna be hell When you hear Mother Freedom  Start ringin' her bell. And it'll feel like the whole wide world Is rainin' down on you Brought to you courtesy  Of the Red, White and Blue.
Oh justice will be served And the battle will rage. This big dog will fight When you rattle his cage. And you'll be sorry that you messed with The U.S. of A. 'Cause we'll put a boot in your ass It's the American way.
Hey Uncle Sam put your name At the top of his list. And the Statue of Liberty Started shakin' her fist. And the eagle will fly And there's gonna be hell When you hear Mother Freedom  Start ringin' her bell. And it'll feel like the whole wide world Is rainin' down on you.
