By: Toby Keith
Soon as we could see clearly
through our big black eye
man, we lit up your world
like the 4th of July
Hey Uncle Sam
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shakin' her fist
And the Eagle will fly
Man, it's gunna be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringin' her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you

Once the wound was patched and we were able to come to together again, we retaliated to defend our freedom that was challenged.
We are represented by the Statue Of LIberty and even though times will be tough when we come together as a nation we will be strong and united under the flag.
