Of Thee I Sing

by jaybird1

Sing out! Sing out America,
"sweet land of liberty".
Tell how we chased the red man,
"from sea to shining sea"

Be proud, stand tall America 
"home of the free and brave".
Ignore that angry black man 
ancestored from a slave.

Sing out! "This land is your land, it was made for you and me" 
while many jobless workers
reside in poverty.

And sing about our many wars,
with them we must abide.
But, tell the loyal citizens,
God was always on their side.

Corruption and intolerance
defines our rule of law.
"God mend thine every flaw."



America is a great country of which I am proud to be
part of.Along the way we have made many mistakes.
