She's seen me through lots of troubles
She's stayed up nights so I could sleep
She's given me more than comfort
She's given me something I can keep
I love her, and I need her,
And I want to be with her all the time
I'd fight just to keep her
And I'd die if I thought she wasn't mine

I love her every morning
Thank God for her every night
I worship the ground she stands on
And I stand on the ground she'll be alright
When you need me, you know I'll be there
'Cause you've always been there for me
America, God Knows I love you
'Cause you've been like a mother to me
America, we've been through troubles
And we'll make it again, just wait and see
America, God knows I love you
'Cause you've been like a mother to me

America, stand up and show it
That you're proud of the red, white, and blue
You love her, and you know it'
'Cause she's been like a mother to you.
