America The Beautiful
Oh beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife
Who more than self, our country loved
And mercy more than life

America, mm America
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine

And you know when I was in school
We used to sing it something like this, listen here

Oh beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain

But now wait a minute, I'm talking about
America, sweet America
You know, God done shed His grace on thee
He crowned thy good, yes He did, in brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

You know, I wish I had somebody to help me sing this
(America, America)
America, I love you America
(God shed His grace on thee)
You see, my God, He done shed His grace on thee
And you oughta love Him for it
'Cause He, He, He, He crowned thy good
He told me He would, with brotherhood
(From sea to shining sea) Shining sea
Oh Lord, oh Lord, I thank you Lord
(Shining sea)
