"This Is America" lyrics - THE OAK RIDGE BOYS

"This Is America"
(Norah Lee Allen)

The sun comes up and shines like gold across the ocean waves
A nation blessed with all the best as we begin our day
We know the price of freedom, we see it every day
We'll pay the debt, 'cause you can bet, we love the U.S.A.

This is our homeland, this is America
We won't give up, we won't give in
'Cause this is America
We trust in God, 'cause this is America
Let's take a stand, we love this land
This is America

The enemy has hurt us, violence knocked us to the ground
An emptiness surrounds us, pain of loss is all around
This threat to our freedom has renewed our will to fight
Our battle cry is victory, we know we'll do what's right
