29 - America


The home of the brave
The land of the free
The green copper smile
Of our lady liberty

Historic independence on 7.4.1776
An ode for all from F. Scott Key
A star spangled banner
A fine patriotic melody

The face of our four fathers
Upon a South Dakota crag
Look upon a nation of hope
That proudly raises its flag

Proclaim liberty for all it reads
Upon the cracked bell of liberty
For this is our home of the brave
And our land of the almighty free
