American Warriors

Written By: Iris Butler

AMERICAN WARRIORS
VERSE 1-
Down thru the ages, enduring the test of time
American soldiers were legendary warriors
For the world they sacrifice their families pay the price
Be the voice from home, let our thanks be known, keep our nation strong
CHORUS-
American Warriors, on land, air and sea
Making a difference to keep the world & homeland free
True heroes lay down their lives, knowing they may not survive
God give a special reward, to American Warriors
VERSE 2-
Though criticized they serve, see the big picture for our world
There’s nothing stronger, than the heart of a volunteer
At the point you & I would flee, they give their lives for you and me
They press in, they press on for victory
CHORUS-
American Warriors, on land air and sea
Making a difference, keeping the world & homeland free
True heroes lay down their lives, knowing they may not survive
God give a special reward, to American warriors
BRIDGE-
America don’t let, the influence of this world
Take away- the greatness of American Warriors
Build and strengthen them to find the weakness in our enemies
For behind them, there’s power in our unity
CHORUS-
American Warriors, on land, air and sea
Willing to pay the price, freedom is never free
True heroes lay down their lives, knowing they may not survive
They’ve got our backs you see, an International Legacy
God give a special reward to American Warriors
God give a special reward to American Warriors

We're American-A Breed of Our Own

Written By: Iris Butler

WE’RE AMERICAN
A BREED OF OUR OWN
CHORUS-
We’re American, a breed of our own
When disaster knocks us down, we grow stronger every day
Till we’re back on our feet again, don’t ever lose hope
Cause we’re all family, and we can conquer anything
VERSE 1-
God you said in your word
Disaster will hunt down men who do violence
Sometimes it seems, that life’s not fair
And at times, that you don’t care
Oh, but God we know, that those who sow
In tears will reap songs of joy
So we call on you in our distress
And you’ll answer us
CHORUS-
We’re American, a breed of our own
When disaster knocks us down, we grow stronger every day
Till we’re back on our feet again, don’t ever lose hope
Cause we’re all family, and we can conquer anything
VERSE 2-
At what point do people go bad
Is it childhood problems, or life’s circumstances
Do parents realize the privilege to raise
The children God trusts in their care
When they grow up someday, will others pay
For the conduct that they demonstrate
Or will their choices be
To change the nation and society
BRIDGE-
Will we turn back to righteousness now
When will we turn it back around
To what it used to be, for we are proud to be
An American
CHORUS-
We’re American, a breed of our own
When disaster knocks us down
We grow stronger every day
Till we’re back on our feet again
Don’t you ever lose hope
Cause we’re all family, with God’s help, we can conquer
Anything, anything; cause we’re American

You Are All America's Heroes

Written By: Iris Butler/Audrey Barnes

“YOU ARE ALL AMERICA’S HEROES”

VERSE 1-
As we sit at home and think of you so very far away
We feel so proud of each one of you, more than words can say
You may hear of all the protests, against what you’re there to do
These people are the minority, just a noisy few

CHORUS-
It seems as each day passes, more are standing up to say
We are proud to be Americans and our freedom is here to stay
You are all America’s heroes, and we admire your bravery
We love you and thank you for keeping America free

VERSE 2-
We’re majority of Americans, and we shout your praises loud
We pray for you, each and every day, as you make us proud
We love our patriot missile, we cheered as you dropped the bombs
We hear of thousands of sorties, a job well done

CHORUS-
It seems as each day passes, more are standing up to say
We are proud to be Americans, and our freedom is here to stay
You are all America’s heroes, and we admire your bravery
We love you, and thank you, for keeping America free

CHORUS-
You are all America’s heroes, and we admire your bravery
We love you, and thank you, for keeping America free
We love you, and thank you, for keeping America free
Keeping America free, keeping America free

If We Just All Pull Together

Written By: Iris Butler

“IF WE JUST ALL PULL TOGETHER”

VERSE 1-
All across the land from California to New York,
Canada to Mexico; no matter what the problem is
Famine to disaster it doesn’t matter
If we’re all in one accord

CHORUS-
If we just all pull together, every need can be met
If we just all help each other, nothing is impossible

VERSE 2-
If we’ll forget all of our differences regardless big or small
And just reach out & touch someone;
It will cause them to give in return unselfishly we all will learn
Together we will stand

CHORUS-
If we just all pull together, every need can be met
If we just all help each other, nothing is impossible

VERSE 3-
One rain drop is not important till it joins with one more
To make the power of the sea
That’s the way it is with you & me, we can pull together
Like one big family

CHORUS-
If we just all pull together, every need can be met
If we just all help each other, nothing is impossible (modulate up)
If we just all pull together, every need can be met
If we just all help each other, nothing is impossible (modulate up again)
If we just all pull together, every need can be met
If we just all help each other, nothing is impossible
Nothing is impossible!

No Place Like America

Written By: Iris Butler

“NO PLACE LIKE AMERICA”
VERSE 1-
I hear the sound of my alarm, waking up & wondering where you are
And then I remember, you’re serving our country
So everyone can have life their own way

CHORUS-
There’s no place like America, America
Land of the free, home of the brave
No matter where I travel in life, even if I’m homeless tonight
There’s no place like America

VERSE 2-
It amazes me the price, that’s been paid by other human lives
Don’t take it for granted; our freedom isn’t cheap
As those have found, who practiced what they preached

CHORUS-
There’s no place like America, America
Land of the free, home of the brave
No matter where I travel in life, even if I’m homeless tonight
There’s no place like America

VERSE 3-
As a citizen you have rights, just remember when you lay your head tonight
Thank God for your freedom
And those that fought it for you
So all can enjoy the security that you do

CHORUS-
There’s no place like America, America
Land of the free, home of the brave
No matter where I travel in life, even if I’m homeless tonight
There’s no place like America
