lyrics

I was born on the fourth of July
In the homeland of the brave
Neath a Star Spangled Banner
That fluttered in the wind

My father held me close
And he looked me in the eye
He said, "Son, this is a free land
But that Freedom has a price"

Tyranny will find you
In the shadows of the night
But Lady Liberty will guide you
If you fight for what is right

For the love of your nation
Is the only love you need
And then my parents taught me
Their song of liberty

Keep the fires of freedom
Burning deep within your heart
And beside the dying embers
We sang our freedom's song

I, I'm in love America
Hear the bell that tolls from sea to shining sea
I want to be, where the eagle flies free
Underneath that deep blue sky
'Til the day I die

I've been around the world
With my brothers at my side
Giving terrorists a taste
Of our second amendment rights

But what good are bullets,
If they're fire without love?
Without you here, America
There's a hole in my heart

For I am just a man
Who bleeds red, white and blue
And for my nation's honor
There's nothing I wouldn't do

I, I'm in love America
Hear the bell that tolls from sea to shining sea
I want to be, where the eagle flies free
Underneath that deep blue sky
'Til the day I die

America, you know I'm not a rich man
But my M60 is loaded for you
I wanna take you out to dinner, America
Fire shots in the dark
Take you home to meet my mom

(Freedom Solo)

I, I'm in love America
(I'm in love with you, my America)
Hear the bell that tolls from sea to shining sea
(Sea to shining sea)
I want to be, where the eagle flies free
(Oh, so free)
Underneath that deep blue sky
'Til the day I die

America, you know that I love you
America, I hope you love me, too
