SONG FOR AMERICA
Valley Forge to Gettysburg
fought and died for a single word.
over the mountain down to the river below
to hear that Liberty Bell toll.
fires at night
Halleluiah filled the air
brought the hope of freedom and a home to share.
When we saw stripes of red and white and stars in a field of blue.
We raised our hands to our hearts and we pledged our love for you.
The shining light of Lady Liberty lifted us up to where the eagle flew.
We stood the fight and did what was right
For America, The red the white and the blue.
Time and again our brave soldiers defend this great democracy.
From this land united we stand, from sea to shining sea
Not without a price – and the cost is high
But we made our choice to live free or die.
From the sacred ground where all our heroes lie
The bugle calls out to a sunset sky…..
Oh a sky
of red and white and stars in a field of blue
my hand to my brow and I said a prayer for you.
the Light of Lady Liberty to give us strength to see us through
early light in Gods blessed sight
America the true.
stood with honor throughout our history
come together in our tragedy
sons and daughters, mothers and fathers
forever in our memories.
on my knees through prayers and tears
raised my head to see when the smoke had cleared
the fall and through it all now and forever….flying free!
stripes of red and white and stars in a field of blue
my hand to the sky and swore I would always defend you.
the light of Lady Liberty out in that harbor shining bright.
dark of night I can see the light
America. America the true.
America, the red the white and the blue.
America..... my sons
and daughters, it is you.
