I AM AN AMERICAN – 2014

Let’s celebrate on the anniversary of our independence what we have in common instead of deprecating one another for our perceived differences.  Happy Independence Day!

Verses:
I am an American
And proud to say
I live in America
In the U.S. of A

My heart beats American
Courageous and free
I’m a living testament
To the best
That America can be

Bridge:
Some thought our dream wouldn’t last
But the torch, once lit, has passed
(Has and passed)

Verse:
I am an American
One limb of the tree
Ever mindful I’m blessed
Up to any test,
An American
That’s me

Refrain:
Big-hearted America
We share one destiny
Ever mindful we’re blessed
Up to any test
All Americans, All Americans
All Americans
Are we

I AM AN AMERICAN

Amidst the hard campaign rhetoric of an election, I thought we need a reminder of our common heritage. This lyric is to my own melody which you’ll have to guess at or compose your own. 

I AM AN AMERICAN
