American Pride

This is one of TLC’s and my all-time most favourite “American” songs. We thought it’d be fun to share the words with Y’all today. July 4th. Our Independence Day!



Proud To Be An American

                               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 living 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 every American’s heart,

And it’s time to stand and say:



That 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.


God bless each one of Y’all—Wherever in the World you are…
