If tomorrow all the things were gone
I worked for all my life
And I had to start again
With just my children and my wife (family in my life).
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. (CHORUS)
And I'll 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 is pride in every American heart
And it's time we stand and say.
(Repeat Chorus 2X)
CommentI'm sure you heard this Lee Greenwood song at many Scout functions.
