My America, I Love You

I love you, my America, though it's now from heaven's view.
I'm still so proud to be an American, and I'm still so proud of you.
For I was blessed to live in the best land God could give.
I love you, my America, "My America, I Love You."

I lived for you, my America, and I fought to keep you free.
You always gave me your security; you'll always have my loyalty.
Your freedoms did remain, so I did not die in vain.
I love you, my America, "My America, I Love You."

You will always be my home to me.  I will never say goodbye.
You're the land I'll love from high above evermore and that is why-

I died for you, my America. I was proud to give my life
While I protected all Americans, my children and my wife.
And though I'm dead, it's true, for I bled red, white and blue,
I love you, my America, "My America, I Love You."


I died for you, my America. I was proud to give my life
While I protected all Americans, my children and my wife.
And though I'm dead, it's true, for I bled red, white and blue-
                                      (Taps played)
"My America, I Love You."
