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 living 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 at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
Next to you and defend her still today.
Cause there aint 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 L.A.
Well there's pride in every American heart,
And it's time we stand and say.

That I'm proud to be an American,
Where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
Next to you and defend her still today.
Cause there aint no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

And I'm proud to be and American,
Where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
Next to you and defend her still today.
Cause there aint no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA

    Be proud of where you came from! We have been through so much as a country, and it is only making us that much stronger. We are one big family, despite our differences.

    To me, this song is saying that we should be proud to be a member of this country, and we should never forget that our freedom was never free, we had to fight for it, which is what he means by "and i won't forget the men who dies, who gave that right to me. "

    But each person has their their own interpretation of this beautiful song.

    Jesus .. Jesus
    Don't touch me, son.
    Why do they keep saying it's too short? Jesus is always the answer, bro. Always. What's 2 3? Anyone? Anyone? It's not 5, if by 5 you mean jesus, yes, it's 5 *cough* jesus *cough. * god, i gotta cold. But jesus will heal me. God bless the usa. M/
