The story behind this song

 

I was inspired to write this song shortly after the events of 9/11. It soon became a tribute to our troops. The first line of the song, OLD GLORY STILL FLIES FADED OUT THERE ON MY FRONT PORCH, means that flag will fly till all the troops are home. No mater what your political party, we need to SUPPORT the TROOPS !


I have sent 100 copies of the cd single to the troops in Iraq. I work with GIVE2THETROOPS.ORG  I produce and burn the cd`s myself. All the proceeds from the cd`s go to make more copies to put in care packages for the troops.

 

If you wish to purchase a cd single of  " THIS IS AMERICA OUR HEART & SOUL " please e-mail me at jms3112@aol.com for details.

 

I would personally like to thank Tommy Farese for the honor of being linked to his site. Thanks to his webmaster Ray, For his hard work and time. Let us all stand hand in hand and pray for peace.


GOD BLESS THE TROOPS !! both past and present, and their families for the sacrifices they have made for you and me.

This Is America
Our Heart & Soul
Lyrics and Music by John Schmidt
Copyright 2004

Old Glory still flies faded, out there on my front porch,
I still believe her truths like Liberty's sweet torch.
This is the land of freedom, where we still have a choice,
No matter who you are, we all still hear your voice.


And united we stand every woman, every child, and every man,
And, united we stand, all across this great country,
all standing hand in hand.

This is America, America,
the land where the Eagle still flies free!
This is America, sweet America,
our heart and soul, and a home for you and me.

This freedom that we love so dear, we know it doesn't come for free,
so many lives were sacrificed, for the dreams of you and me.
I pledge allegiance to the flag, and long may it wave,
one nation under God, and the home of the brave.

And united we stand every woman, every child, and every man,
And, united we stand, all across this great country,
all standing hand in hand.

And America is standing proud, we'll never come apart,
The world will hear our message, cause it's coming from our heart,
our heart....

This is America, America,
the land where the Eagle still flies free!
This is America, sweet America,
our heart and soul, and a home for you and me,
our heart and soul, and a home for you and me.
This is America!!!
