Freedom Holds The Key



Freedom Holds The Key

( Dedicated To Americans

Freedom is a precious gift 
Given from above
Cherish it with all your heart 
And always share your love

We are still Americans
Oh let our voice be heard
Let us stand up and speak the truth 
That it is written in every word

Many have died to keep us free 
They paid the price for you and me
Many wars have been fought 
To hold this golden key safe
And never to be caught
Let us study the history 
When our nation was born
The Boston Tea Party that took place 
Is a lesson that still warns

Violence is never the answer
Yes! we are smarter than that
We need spiritual weapons for this fight
to win and that's that!

At the booth we will cast these people out
Then they will know without a shadow of doubt
That We Are The People who will never move out

We love America
The way it was formed
Our Forefathers risked their life
To help Our Constitution be born

But now! Almost 300 years later
We have some who want to take it away
They are changing the laws, 
Behind closed doors to suit their own way!

Freedom comes with a cost
That will cause us to sacrifice all
To keep our country the way it should be
And never let her fall

Our flag was designed 
With three important colors
Red, White And Blue, 
We wave it high for all to see
To let the world know,
That we still hold this key

Freedom came with a high price
Blood had to be shed, Red
White stands for the purity, that we once held
But, when they removed the "Ten Commandments"
Our country began to fail!
Blue stood for the Honor
of who we are today
We still can be, that shining star
They cannot take away!
