If tomorrow all the things were gone
I'd worked for all my life
And I had to start again
With just my family by my side
I'd thank my lucky stars, to be livin' here today
Because the flag still stands for freedom,
And they can't take that away

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me

And I gladly stand up
Next to you and defend her still today
Because there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota to the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea
From Detroit down to Houston, to New York to L.A.
Well there's pride in every American heart
And it's time to make a change

That I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
And who gave that right to me

And I gladly stand up, next to you
And defend her still today
Because there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the U.S.A.

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
And who gave that right to me

And I gladly stand up next to you
And defend her still today
Because there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the U.S.A.
