I read, with pride, Mojo's post about the Romanian Newpaper Article below. It's that same Pride that stands out as a driving force in the making of an American. Pride of Constitution Hall, The Liberty Bell, The Statue of Liberty, Mt. Rushmore, The washington Monument, The Alamo and countless other landmarks which remind is of our heritage. And, above all, there is the pride that comes with seeing our flag flying unfurled in the wind.

And, another thing that makes us so very unique is our freedom of speech. And, all over this land, from the very beginning, when people couldn't get their message of pride across any other way, they wrote songs about America.

I'm convinced that no other land, on the face of the earth, can boast of so many songs. Therefore, I thought it would be fun to see how many different songs, about America, we could compile.

So, please add whatever songs you can think of to the list. They could include, Yankee Doodle, And The Arkansas Traveller. Any thing that has to do with America and The States. An example would be, the Erie Canal, or the yellow Rose of Texas.

Let's give this a try and see how many we get. So, don't be bashful....gfp

Woody's this land is your land..the last line of which "this land was made for you and me" was originally written as "God bless America for Me". Written when "God Bless America" was popular and Woody saw alot of Americans during the Dust Bowl that were not so blessed.

Toby Keith's "An American Soldier"

I'd like to add, " My Country 'Tis Of Thee", and "Dixie." Always managed to raise a hackle and draw a tear.

How about Lee Greenwoods-- I'm Proud to be an American, that one always gives me goose bumps. Or An American Soldier, Have You Forgotten, Where were you when the world stopped turning? Dunno if these are the kinds of songs you are looking for Alias but there are surely alot of good ones out there that can make us all feel a sense of Pride in being an American : )

Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain.
Oklahoma,
Ev'ry night my honey lamb and I
Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk
Makin' lazy circles in the sky.
We know we belong to the land
And the land we belong to is grand!
And when we say
Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!
We're only sayin'
You're doin' fine,
Oklahoma!
Oklahoma O.K.
Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain.
Oklahoma,
Ev'ry night my honey lamb and I
Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk
Makin' lazy circles in the sky.
We know we belong to the land
And the land we belong to is grand!
And when we say
Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!
We're only sayin'
You're doin' fine,
Oklahoma!
Oklahoma O.K.

We could start with THE GRAND STATE OF MAINE. Actually I think all states have a state song.
My favorite would be Oh Beautiful, For Spacious Skies.
Chas, lovin America, up here in Maine.

I agree with Chas and Les on "O Beautiful" and "My Country Tis of Thee". The national anthem always gets to me. And for a state song I do love "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynard Skynard. :)
