"Can't Take That Away" as written by and Michael Gerald/johnson Lunn....
What can they all be thinkin'
Wanna' take the cross off of the hill
Put away the pledge of allegiance
Lord, just the thought gives me a chill
They can take god off our money but, in the end 'o ain't it funny
How were all gonna see him on the judgment day
So sing it loud

[Chorus]
One more time
Hear what you say
When you got the truth inside, now they can't take that away
One more time
'cause it ain't too late
Hold on to what you believe 'cause they can't take that
They can't take that away

They want to change somethin' somewhere for everybody
Right now a change ain't what we need
Just like my father's father before him
They held on with pride to everything they believed
They can take god off our money but, in the end 'o ain't it funny
How were all gonna see him on the judgment day

[Chorus]

There's a fire that burns forever
Come a day we ain't gonna take no more

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis song should be a national anthem! -- To think this came out on a 1993 album, and what it really means today

    General CommentWow. Very inspirational song. Or I think so anyway. I absolutely love the chorus. It's pretty obvious what the song is about
