Patriotic song about America

Words and music (C) Helmut Licht

I came from Germany in 1958 with $ 25 in my pocket and the clothes on my back. America has been so very good to me and this song expresses how I feel about it!
Every morning, when I wake up
And the dawning light I see
I thank God that I am living
In this great land of the free.
And the joy I feel within me
Nothing else can ever bring
So I turn my eyes to heaven
And let my heart begin to sing:
I love America, sweet sweet land of mine
To know that I'm an American
Makes me feel so fine
I love America, she's been good to me
And there's no other place
That I would rather be.
There's room for you and room for me
People are proud and people are free
Always ready to be a helping friend
That's my country! That's my land!
I love America, and every American should
To know that I'm an American
Makes me feel so good.
I love America, I say it clear and loud
To know that I'm an American
Makes me feel so proud! x
