USA, I'm Proud to be from Thee (Lyrics/music Copyright:James Udesky)

USA, I've been gone it seems forever

Now I know why your such a treasure

Whether near or far away

USA, I'm Proud to be from Thee

The world views you like a bulls-eye

Everybody's taking aim

Some come to enjoy what you give

While others take you down, destroy how you live

USA, spacious and full of hope

With visionary scope

I'm Proud to be from Thee

Can't be denied there are problems galore

Eye-sores to hard to ignore

The lion's share controlled by the few

With wages so low, what can the rest of us do

Is there an end in sight, a way out of this plight

Sacrifices from our forbearers still live on with each generation

The Declaration of Independence, the Emancipation Proclamation too.

Women's Rights, Civil Rights, Immigration Rights, Economic Rights

Earth Day, save the Planet from Global Warming

World War I and II, Korea, Vietnam the Gulf Wars and beyond

Now terrorists strike anytime, anywhere,

still you carry on through this despair

You're so resilient to catastrophes, facing each one with gallantry

Reaching out for those in need

A thankless task, but its part of your creed

Let em love you or hate ya, think what they may

So thankful to live in the USA

I've been gone it seems forever (You are my soul away from home)

Now I know why you're such a treasure. (You never left when I was far away, I felt your presence in each new day)

Whether near or far away

USA, I'm Proud to be from Thee

I'm still Proud to be from Thee

I'm finally home.
