Let's Keep The Communists Out

This song is by Terry Preston and appears on the compilation Atomic Platters: Cold War Music From the Golden Age of Homeland Security (2005).

Now this is the land of the brave and free where we can sing and shout
But it won't be long if we don't stick together and try to keep the Communists out
Now would you like for this country to be run by people who preach that there is no God?
No! You would rather you and your loved ones, even your children, would sleep beneath the sod
Before this horrible fate would come to this land of good old democracy
But it won't happen if we live our religion and pray for those folks who live across the sea
Who am I to say that the trouble with this nation is that we forget from day to day
To thank Our Lord for our blessings we receive as we travel life's long highway
But I'm sure that most anyone with good, common sense
Would feel free to say, "Yes, that's the trouble with this world!"
We do other things, but we sometimes forget to pray
Now I'm for good old democracy, and I know you folks feel the same
So let's keep our country free and clean from this so-called Communist name
Now you may be a Catholic, you may be a Protestant, or maybe you're a Jew
But no matter what you are, if you really live it, I'm sure the Lord will take care of you
So let's keep the same old government for which our loved ones have fought and died
And I'm sure you'll agree we can rest assured when the Communists are put aside
And across this land of freedom, so strong, courageous and true
Let's keep that old Liberty Bell ringin' in the name of the red, white and blue
Now how many people stop to think of just what Communism could cause?
We couldn't celebrate Thanksgivin' or Independence Day, and our children would not have Santa Claus
Think of how long your little town would last if this atomic bomb was dropped
Now I was in the last war and I swore up and down that I would never go again
But for my family and religion, I'm willin' to die before I see the Communists come in
