On this Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day, I can not think of a more appropriate song.
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 livin' here today
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can't take that away
 And I'm proud to be an American where as least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me
 And I'd 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 LA
 Well, there's pride in every American heart
And it's time to stand and say that...

 I'm proud to be an American where as least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me
 

And I'd 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
   
 
We thank all of the service men and women, and their families, who gave the ultimate sacrifice for OUR country.
