We Are The People (of America)
LYRICS – WE ARE THE PEOPLE (OF AMERICA)
Our lives may never be the same
We’ll continue on again and again
Each day you wear that fine uniform
We want you to remember this:
We are the people of America
And we stand proud right next to you
Raisin’ that red, white and blue
The people of America
Live in freedom because of you
Know that you are not alone
We are with you in the prayers we say
Just bring our boys and girls safely home
Let freedom ring another day
We hold you dear and wish you near
We stand proud right next to you
This song was written as the US was preparing to invade Iraq in early 2003. There was a lot of emotion at that time in America over this.
Special thanks to Jaye Sooter for singing on this song. I think he did a great job. (He’s one of my favorite vocalists).
I think it is enormously important to recognize and support our troops. That
said, it’s also true that many have begun to question the wisdom and purposes for which they were sent. I think this
well-sung song does honor those who serve, and would be well-received.
On listening to it again it does make me feel very patriotic.
This song is always in the back of my mind especially as I become more politically and socially involved. I WILL work it into one of our events one way or another to get it out to the public. Always felt that the song should have been a major hit and eventually become as much as a tradition as “God Bless the USA”, AND I will play the Pledge of Allegiance one for Cheer Trax right along with it!
There was a lot of buzz and hope for this song when it was released. Maybe there’s still some hope? 🙂
YES! There is hope! There is a reason that it sits in the back of my mind, always waiting and watching for that opportunity.
