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 (Chorus) 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'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 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 it's time we stand and say Here are the lyrics. This song is great! Who could not like this song? We really need to remember it now. Has anyone heard the World Trade Center version that he sang? (lee greenwood sings this) By the way no rude comments in this thread. Post them somewhere else.
