AMERICA MY HOME

I've always been prepared to give my life for liberty.
I'll fight for truth and justice to keep this country free.
I sing along to freedom songs as tears fall from my eyes.
The love I feel for this great land I will not compromise.

Oh, America I love you, you're a grand symphony.
I'm proud that you're my motherland, you've been so good to me.
Oh, America I love you, America my home. 
America you're in my heart wherever I may roam.

With the courage of our people flying high on eagles wings. 
We'll stand together and defend this land where freedom rings.
Our children will be free to dream where dreams can still come true.
You're precious gifts surround us and that's why we sing to you.

Oh, America I love you, you're a grand symphony.
I'm proud that you're my motherland, you've been so good to me.
Oh, America I love you, America my home.
America you're in my heart wherever I may roam.

The torch of Lady Liberty burns bright across our skies.
Our hopes and prayers for freedom are reflected in her eyes.
She guides us through the hardest times revealing strength unknown.
Let's spread our wings like eagles now and fly where they have flown.

Oh, America I love you, you're a grand symphony.
I'm proud that you're my motherland, you've been so good to me.
Oh, America I love you, America my home.
America you're in my heart wherever I may roam.

    You put it beautifully, I have to agree I feel the same way, My Grandfather (WWI)my farther (WWII), my Brother( Nam)and I all served this country, with life and limb on the line and it's very disturbing how past and present politicians keep betraying this country .
