1: Home of the free...Because of the Brave | Coming to America By: Neil Diamond (1980)

2: Far We've been traveling far Without a home But not without a star

3: Free Only want to be free We huddle close Hang on to a dream

4: There's a whole lot of party going on | On the boats and on the planes They're coming to America Never looking back again They're coming to America

5: Home, don't it seem so far away Oh, we're traveling light today In the eye of the storm In the eye of the storm

6: Home, to a new and a shiny place Make our bed, and we'll say our grace Freedom's light burning warm Freedom's light burning warm

7: Everywhere around the world They're coming to America Every time that flag's unfurled They're coming to America

8: Got a dream to take them there They're coming to America Got a dream they've come to share They're coming to America

9: Stars 'n' Stripes Forever | They're coming to America They're coming to America They're coming to America They're coming to America Today, today, today, today, today

10: My country 'tis of thee Today Sweet land of liberty Today

11: Of thee I sing Today Of thee I sing Today

12: The Song of the Red Man

13: By: Henry C. Wok (1868)

14: When the palefaces came in their whitewing'd canoes, Long ago, from the sun-rising sea When they ask'd for a lodge, and we did not refuse Happy then was the red man, and free.

15: He could then choose a spot for his wigwam to stand, Where the forest was crowded with game; For the blue-rolling lake and the ever smiling land Were his own till the palefaces came For the broad grassy plains and the forests deep and grand, Were his own till the palefaces came.

16: They came! they came! like the fierce prairie flame, Sweeping on to the sun-setting shore: Gazing now on its waves, but a handful of braves, We shall join in the the chase nevermore Till we camp on the plains where the Great Spirit reigns, We shall join in the chase nevermore.

17: We receiv'd them with gladness, as Sons of the Sky We believ'd them of heavenly birth; But alas! to our sorrow we found by and by, That like us they were born of the earth.

18: By their false traders wrong'd, by their firewater craz'd, There was no one our braves to restrain; So the swift flew, and the tomahawk was raise'd;

19: While we both mourn'd the blood of our slain; So the smoke-wreath did cease from the calumet of peace, While we both mourn'd the blood of our slain.

20: When the oaks, pines and cedars were fell'd to the ground, 'Twas a sight that with sorrow we saw; For the game fled affrighted, and no food was found For the old chief, the papoose and squaw. Driven westward we came, but the paleface was here, With his sharp axe and death-flashing gun;

21: And his great iron horse is rumbling in the rear "O, my brave men!" your journey is done. Like the beaver and elk like the buffalo and deer "O, my brave men!" your journey is done.

22: Uncle Sam's Farm

23: Home of the free...Because of the Brave | By: E.P. Christy and Jesse Hutchinson

24: Of all the mighty nations in the East or in the West, O this glorious Yankee nation is the greatest and the best. We have room for all creation and our banner is unfurled, Here's a general invitation to the people of the world.

25: Then come along, come along, make no delay; Come from every nation, come from every way. Our lands, they are broad enough - don't be alarmed, For Uncle Sam is rich enough to give us all a farm.

26: St. Lawrence marks our Northern line as fast her waters flow; And the Rio Grande our Southern bound, way down to Mexico. From the great Atlantic Ocean where the sun begins to dawn, Leap across the Rocky Mountains far away to Oregon.

27: Then come along, come along, make no delay; Come from every nation, come from every way. Our lands, they are broad enough - don't be alarmed, For Uncle Sam is rich enough to give us all a farm.

28: While the South shall raise the cotton, and the West, the corn and pork, New England manufactories shall do up the finer work; For the deep and flowing waterfalls that course along our hills Are just the thing for washing sheep and driving cotton mills.

29: Then come along, come along, make no delay; Come from every nation, come from every way. Our lands, they are broad enough - don't be alarmed, For Uncle Sam is rich enough to give us all a farm.

30: Our fathers gave us liberty, but little did they dream The grand results that pour along this mighty age of steam; For our mountains, lakes and rivers are all a blaze of fire, And we send our news by lightning on the telegraphic wires.

31: Then come along, come along, make no delay; Come from every nation, come from every way. Our lands, they are broad enough - don't be alarmed, For Uncle Sam is rich enough to give us all a farm.

32: The brave in every nation are joining heart and hand And flocking to America, the real promised land; And Uncle Sam stands ready with a child upon each arm To give them all a welcome to a lot upon his farm.

33: Then come along, come along, make no delay; Come from every nation, come from every way. Our lands, they are broad enough - don't be alarmed, For Uncle Sam is rich enough to give us all a farm.

34: A welcome, warm and hearty, do we give the sons of toil To come to the West and settle and labor on free soil; We've room enough and land enough, they needn't feel alarm - O! come to the land of freedom and vote yourself a farm.

35: Then come along, come along, make no delay; Come from every nation, come from every way. Our lands, they are broad enough - don't be alarmed, For Uncle Sam is rich enough to give us all a farm.

36: Yes! we're bound to lead the nations for our motto's "Go ahead," And we'll tell the foreign paupers that our people are well fed; For the nations must remember that Uncle Sam is not a fool, For the people do the voting and the children go to school.

37: Then come along, come along, make no delay; Come from every nation, come from every way. Our lands, they are broad enough - don't be alarmed, For Uncle Sam is rich enough to give us all a farm.
