America, the Beautiful

Samuel A. Ward and Katherine Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
 for amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
, above the fruited plain!
America! America! 
God shed thy grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood and sisterhood, 
from sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
 whose stern impassioned stress,
A thoroughfare of freedom beat
, across the wilderness!
America! America!
 God mend thine every flaw.
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
 thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for patriot dream
 that sees beyond the years
,
Thine alabaster cities gleam
 undimmed by human tears!
America! America!
 God shed thy grace on thee
,
And crown thy good with brotherhood and sisterhood
 from sea to shining sea!

I’m Gonna Walk It With You

Brian Claflin & Ellie Grace

Well it looks like it might be a hard road
But I’m gonna walk it with you.
And I know you might have a heavy load,
But I can carry some too.
I will lift you up when they push you down,
I will raise my voice and stand my ground.
Well it looks like it might be a hard road,
But I’m gonna walk it with you.

And it looks like it might be a long night,
But I ain’t goin’ no where.
And I know it’s gonna be a hard fight,
But I will stay right here.
I will shine a light in the darkest hour,
I will face the man in the tallest tower.
Well it looks like it might be a long night,
But I ain’t goin’ nowhere.

I will work! I will fight!
I will strive in the name of love.
I will speak! I will shout!
I will sing it to the skies above.
Well it looks like it might be a perilous climb,
But I will follow your lead.
And I know it might be a long time
Before the last one of us is freed.
But I will hold on tight, stay by your side,
I will be with you for this whole damn ride.
Well it looks like it might be a perilous climb,
But I will follow your lead.

Well it looks like it might be a hard road
But I’m gonna walk it with you.
And I know you might have a heavy load,
But I can carry some too.
I will lift you up when they push you down,
I will raise my voice and stand my ground.
Well it looks like it might be a hard road,
But I’m gonna walk it with you.

I’m gonna walk it with you.
I’m gonna walk it with you.
I will walk!
I will climb!
Shine my light the whole night through.
Because it looks like it might be a hard road,
But I’m gonna walk it with you.

Quiet

MILCK

Put on your face, 
know your place, 
shut up and smile. 
Don’t spread your legs. 
I could do that.

But no one knows me, no one ever will 
if I don’t say something, if I just lie still.
Would I be a monster, scare them all away , if I let them hear what I have to say?

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh 
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 

I can’t keep quiet, 
for anyone, 
anymore.

Cuz no one knows me no one ever will 
if I don’t say something, take that dry blue pill,
They may see a monster, they may run away, but I have to do this.

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh 
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 
Oh I can’t keep quiet.

Let it out, Let it out, 
Let it out now. 
There’ll be someone who understands.
Let it out, Let it out, 
Let it out now. 
Must be someone who’ll understand.
Let it out, Let it out, 
Let it out now. 
There’ll be someone who understands
Let it out Let it out 
Let it out now 
.

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh 
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh.
I can’t keep quiet
No no

No, we won’t keep quiet.

This Land Is Your Land

Woodie Gutherie

(Chorus)
This land is your land, this land is my land,
From California to the New York island;
From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters,
This land was made for you and me.

(verse 1)
As I was walking that ribbon of highway,
I saw above me that endless skyway:
I saw below me that golden valley:
This land was made for you and me.
CHORUS

(verse 2)
I’ve roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts;
And all around me a voice was sounding:
This land was made for you and me.
CHORUS

(verse 3)
When the sun came shining, and I was strolling,
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling,
As the fog was lifting a voice was chanting:
This land was made for you and me.
CHORUS

(verse 4)
As I went walking, I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said “No Trespassing.”
But on the other side it didn’t say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.
CHORUS

(verse 5)
In the shadow of the steeple I saw my people,
By the relief office I seen my people;
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?
CHORUS

(verse 6)
Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me.
CHORUS
