    I'm looking for patriotic songs, or songs about America, to put on a CD for my husband as a gift. So far I have these songs in mind, all suggestions are welcome!

    Have you forgotten?
    God bless the USA
    It's America
    American Soldier

    American Girl by Tom Petty ( a little risky, but hey- American girls DO rock!)
  7. Hubby and I were in Dance Troupe for FSDB (deaf school in Florida) and we did "GOD BLESS THE USA" in ASL as a group...

    The boys (standing in front of the girls):
    If tomorrow all the things were gone,
    I’d worked for all my life.
    And I had to start again,
    with just my children and my wife.

    I’d thank my lucky stars,
    to be livin here today.
    ‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
    and they can’t take that away.

    And Im proud to be an American
    Where at least I know Im free
    I wont forget the men who died
    to gave that right to me

    (boys and girls switch places)

    I glady stand up, next to you
    and defend her still today
    Because there is no doubt
    I love this land...
    God bless the usa

    THe Girls:
    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,
    and New York to L.A.
    Well there's pride in every American heart,
    and its time we stand and say.

    Boys form line with girls:
    That I’m proud to be an American,
    where at least I know I’m free.
    And I wont forget the men who died,
    who gave that right to me.

    And I gladly stand up,
    next to you and defend her still today.
    ‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
    God bless the USA.

    The performance was SOO Cool! Everyone just LOVED IT! If I could get a video of the Dance Troupes, I would be MORE then happy to show everyone.
    (sorry if I hijacked the thread)
