A fourth of July salute to America the beautiful
From Alaska to Nebraska,
from the tundra to the corn,
I’m amazed with wide-eyed wonder
at this land where I was born.
From the Blue Ridge to the Rockies,
from the East to way out West,
I’m convinced with every mile
that America’s the best.
From the Islands to the deserts,
from the seashore to the sand,
I’m aware of God’s creation
oceans blue and canyons grand.
From Atlantic to Pacific,
from the right to the left coast,
I am constantly reminded
why Americans can boast.
From the Bayou to the Boundaries,
from the South to points up North,
we’ve good cause to wave Old Glory
as we celebrate The Fourth
