Lyrics
Imagine life without a home or a country to call your own Thank God for those who gave their lives To make this the home of the brave Come live the American Dream Set yourself free and fight for your beliefs Place your hand on your heart and a shed a tear For Mother USA today In years gone by, we’ve fought our way To give us all we have today Brave souls who mark their graves Cry out so you can hear them say Come live the American Dream Set yourself free and fight for your beliefs Place your hand on your heart and a shed a tear For Mother USA today Remember that September day, the sun shined down While our children played The sky was clear when the planes came down Clouds of smoke rose from the ground We watched in disbelief and cried While thousands of our brothers died Evil won a round that day But they can’t take our pride away A new day dawns and hope abounds You’ll find it there from town to town We paid the price for freedom’s sake And we’ll rise to show the world we still lead the way Come live the American Dream Set yourself free and fight for your beliefs Place your hand on your heart and a shed a tear For Mother USA today
