God Bless America

By Irving Berlin
Narrator: Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates

shall stand a mighty woman with a torch,

whose flames is the imprisoned lightning,

and her name Mother of Exiles.

From her beacon hand glows world wide welcome;

Her mild eyes command the air bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she with silent lips.

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these the homeless, tempest-tost to me.

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
All: While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,

Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free.

Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,

As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
God bless America, land that I love.

Stand beside her and guide her

Through the night with a light from above.

From the mountains to the prairies,

To the oceans, white with foam.

God bless America, my home, sweet home.

God bless America, my home, sweet home.
(Sing Refrain again)
God bless America my home, sweet home.

God bless America my home, sweet home.

I’m A Yankee Doodle Dandy

By George M Cohan
I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy,

A Yankee Doodle do or die;

A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam’s,

born on the Fourth of July.

I’ve got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart,

she’s my Yankee Doodle joy.

Yankee Doodle came to town a ridin’ on a pony,

I am a Yankee Doodle boy.
(sing verse 1 again)
I’ve got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart,

She’s my Yankee Doodle joy.

Yankee Doodle came to town a-ridin’ on a pony.

I am a Yankee Doodle boy.
Oh,
Yankee Doodle came to town a-ridin’ on a pony,


I am a Yankee Doodle

I am a Yankee Doodle

(rest) I am a Yankee Doodle (rest) boy.

America, The Beautiful

By Katherine Lee Bates and Samuel A. Ward
O beautiful for spacious skies,

For amber waves of grain,

For purple mountain majesties

Above the fruited plain.
America! America! God shed his grace on thee

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shinning sea!
O beautiful for heroes proved

In liberating strife.

Who more than self their country loved,

And mercy more than life!

More than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine,

til all success be nobleness,



and ev’ry gain divine.

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea!

Thank You, Soldiers

By Michael And Angela Souders
When I lay my head down ev’ry night

And go to sleep in peace,

I can stay there knowing all is well,

While you’re standing on your feet.
Keeping watch, protecting shore to shore,

In the air and oceans, too,

Defending freedom at all cost,

For the red, white and the blue.
Thank you, oh thank you,

Men and women brave and strong.

To those who serve(d) so gallantly

We sing this grateful song.
To the soldiers who have traveled on

To countries far and near,

In peace and war you paid the price

For the cause you hold so dear.
That we may wake each morning bright,

And know that freedom rings;

Because of your great sacrifice,

Your country joins to sing.
(Sing refrain 2 more times)

God Bless The USA

By Lee Greenwood
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 livin’ here today,

cause the flag still stands for freedom



and they can’t take that away.
And 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’d 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.

Well, there’s pride in ev’ry American heart,

And it’s time to stand and say
(Sing refrain 2 times)
