Where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me
And I'll proudly stand up next to him to defend her still today,
Cuz there aint no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA"

"Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand 
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation! 
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust." 
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!"
