“God Bless the USA” analysis of lyrics in defense of Lee Greenwood

My, my… THAT didn’t take long. Having put up Lee’s patriotism the other day, a comment came in condemning Lee as sinful for having written such a great song.

  • “Awesome and moving musical performance combined with insane propaganda lyrics! “…I know I’m free…” Really? “I’m Proud….I’m Proud…I’m Proud” Pride is a sin and comes before the fall! “men…gave the RIGHT of freedom to us”? Seriously? Men don’t give us rights, rights come from our duty to God! “they can’t take our freedom away”? Our culture is giving away our freedoms more and more every day. Freedom of speech, freedom to assemble, freedom to freely exercise our religion. If you would “gladly stand up and defend her”, the first step is to realize that she needs defending now and the next step is to do it! Complacency is killing America.”

Sounds serious, that. “Propaganda lyrics…” sounds like a something a marxist would say. So, I’m game! Let’s analyze the lyrics [my comments]:

If tomorrow all the things were gone
I worked for all my life [like with all the marxist rioting, arson, looting, murder, assaults…]
And I had to start again
With just my children and my wife [pro-family: one man, one woman, children!!!]
I’d thank my lucky stars [That’s actually a reference to States which have a representative star on the flag.]
To be living here today [Because despite the marxists, who think life is equated to things, real Americans know there is much more to life in a country under God.]
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom [as in the free exercise of religion, freedom of assembly, freedom of speech…]
And they can’t take that away [And that’s true. And here’s the point: we always have the freedom to do the right thing against whatever bullies. To just get frustrated and jaded and depressed and cynical and full of hate is NOT the way to go. Don’t be such a wimpish empty shell of a human being and go ahead and be a martyr. That brings us to the next words…]
And I’m proud to be an American [Obviously, this does not refer to some sort of sin, but instead refers to the happiness, contentedness, joy in that which just so right, you know, one nation, under God… Marxists hate patriotism. Patriotism is a virtue.]
Where at least I know I’m free [Free exercise of religion… you know the drill…]
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me [To the critic, I ask you, what have you done? Nothing is the answer. You haven’t given your life, have you? The answer is no. No you haven’t. How very pathetic of you. Here’s the deal: God grants us the unalienable rights, yes, but, wait for it, God also uses us. The defense against unjust aggression is also a corporal work of mercy regarding which God will judge us. If you condemn all those who have died cooperating with that is under God for your benefit…]
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today [The critic holds that there is no one doing anything right now. Do you know how many members of the military and law enforcement are being injured and laying down their lives for you as we speak, despite your ignorance and hatred? I invite this critic to the next Officer Down! Memorial Dinner where we read off all the LODDs, all the Line of Duty Deaths for the year.]
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
From the lakes of Minnesota [Hey! My home state! Thanks for the shout out, Lee. The soldiers from Minnesota suffered the most casualties in Gettysburg during the Civil War percentage-wise, that is, more than any other troops in any battle in modern history. Get it? You know, about doing something for freedoms?]
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. [This geography recalls, of course, Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a dream” speech, right?]
Where’s pride in every American heart
And it’s time we stand and say
That I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
And I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.


Finally, the keyboard warrior critic who is on the attack lives next to an FBI station. Interesting, that. Perhaps a follower of Peter Strzok and James Comey… trying to sound patriotic but just smashing down any patriotism anywhere anytime.
