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 gladly stand up
Next to you and defend her still today
Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land
God bless the USA

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 heart,
And its time we 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 gladly stand up
Next to you and defend her still today
Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land
God bless the USA.

And I’m proud to be and 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 USA.

  1. I love Lee Greenwood and his song. I love America, or at least the idea of the Founder’s America. Thomas Jefferson loved America too, and when he spoke of what he thought would be required to meet Ben Franklin’s admonition “…if you can keep it…” he posited that the “tree of liberty’s” fertilizing might be every 25 years or so. We’ve done a tad better than that over the years and like every one of us we’ve not lived perfect lives.

    Ol’ Lees, “And I gladly stand up, Next to you and defend her still today…” is exactly what I think most of the Patriots on this site might think every day. I’m not angry at Lee or America, I’m angry at the jacklegs abusing her! We ought not to turn our anger at America – the idea – anymore than if some fool put his hands on your wife. What makes sense to me is that you kick the tar out of the miscreant to protect your wife and return her honor. You wouldn’t turn her out, you’d “fix” the bastard that abused her.

    And that’s one thread I find runnin’ mighty strong, here, and a whole lot of other places today.

      Yep. Kinda sorta. While not as simplistic as you submit, it ain’t as simplistic as they’re submittin’. But if I’m pickin’, I’m on your side.

  2. apparently no one can agree on what it means to “kick the tar out of the miscreant ” or even who the miscreant is.

    If Lee Greenwood doesn’t write a disclaimer song, I won’t be angry but then Lee Greenwood would be an idiot.

  3. Youtube “Reverend Jim Jones” and watch his sermons and the idiots in his “People’s Temple”. I knew our government reminded me of somebody. And Lee Greenwood is an ass clown.

  4. Please pass the Kool-aid, he thinks he’s free, ROFL.

  5. I tear up every time I hear that song. I use to tear up because of how happy it made me, and now I tear up because of how heartbroken and angry I am over what this country has become.
