Lee Greenwood – God Bless the USA
Single lansat la 21 Mai 1984, de pe albumul You’ve Got a Good Love Comin’. Un cantec patriotic inspirat din tragedia doborarii avionului korean 007 la 1 Septembrie 1983.
A inceput sa cante melodia in spectacole in toamna lui 1983, publicul aplaudand de la primele note. Dupa o vreme, a schimbat melodia la sfarsitul de spectacol ca si moment culminant.
If tomorrow all my things were gone
I’d work for all my life.
And I had had to start again,
With just my children and my wife.
And I’d think my lucky stars to be livin’ here today,
Cause the flag still stand 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 ones 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…..
