LAND OF THE FREE

I WATCHED THE DAYS PASS ONE BY ONE.
EACH RISE AND SETTING OF THE SUN.
I WATCHED THE SEASONS COME AND GO.
THAT HELPED THE TREES AND FLOWERS GROW.
I WATCHED THE CLOUDS GENTLY FLOATING BY.
AS THEY COMPETED AND RACED ACROSS THE SKY.

I WATCHED THE ANIMALS AT THEIR PLAY.
AND SEEN THEM MATURE DAY AFTER DAY.
I WATCHED THE STREAMS AND RIVERS FLOW.
AND FELT THE WINDS AND BREEZES BLOW.
I WATCHED THE OCEANS FAR AND WIDE.
AND THE COMING AND GOING OF THE TIDE

I WATCHED THE FIELDS OF TENDER CORN.
DRINK UP THE DEW OF THE EARLY MORN.
I WATCHED THE EXPANSE OF THE SPACIOUS
SKIES.
I WATCHED THIS ALL WITH GLADENING EYES.
I WATCHED THE FIELDS OF GOLDEN GRAINS.
AS THEY WERE PLANTED ON THE WESTERN
PLAINS.

I WATCHED THE MOUNTIANS IN THEIR MAJESTY.
SHINING EVER SHINING FROM SEA TO SEA.
I WATCHED THE PEOPLE AS THEY TOOK COMMAND.
AS THEY DROVE THEIR PLOWS AND LEVELED THE
LAND.
I WATCHED THEM FIGHT AND SEEN THEM DIE.
AND SEEN THEIR PAIN AND HEARD THEM CRY.

I WATCHED THEIR INDUSTRIES AS THEY
STEADLY GREW.
AND ALL THE CITIES THAT GREW UP ANEW.
I WATCHED THE PIONEERS AS THEY WERE PUT
TO THE TEST.
WITH DETERMINATION PUSHED STEADLY WEST.
I WATCHED THE DROVERS AS THEY DROVE THEIR
CATTLE.
WHEN THEY TOOK A FIRM STAND AND WON EVERY
BATTLE.

I WATCHED THESE PEOPLE ONE AND ALL
AS THEY TOOK UP ARMS AND CHALLENGED THE CALL.
AND I WATCHED THE PEOPLE STRECH FROM SEA TO
SEA.
FIGHT FOR FREEDOM AND WIN THEIR LIBERTY.
