Where Has My Country Gone?
Where has my country gone, I can’t seem to find it any where?
I remember as a child going to school and, starting it with the pledge of Allegiance, and a prayer.
I, never really never minded, I liked starting my day that way,
It made me feel good inside, to know that I had prayed.
Where is my country, the land I love is gone,
It’s hiding in far away lands and, fighting to keep us strong.
Where is my country, surely not in my grandchild’s face,
For, they do not know the song America, and that is a disgrace.
Where are all the truthful leaders, that fight for her each day,
They have found their way to another land, and left America get away.
Where is all the outrage of a country, that God shed his grace on to be free.
I know she will come back someday, for this is the only America I see.
Where is my country, I can not find her anywhere,
She has vanished in the dark of night, and left us without prayer.
Where are all the masses shouting you can not take her away,
She was given to us, with much death, and pain she is here to stay.
Where is America, she is crying out to thee, I am in your hands.
America if you really want to stay free.
