Every year we celebrate several US holidays and some worldwide having to do with patriotism and sacrifice. So, thought I’d share this article with you about patriotic songs and what they still mean.

Patriotic songs are the perfect way to remember freedom and those who are helping to preserve it.

You almost know all the words to that great patriotic song “It’s a grand old flag, its a good timing flag

We all do. And that is one of the wonderful things about patriotic songs.

What Would The 4th of July Be Without Patriotic Music?

Since the tragic day of September 11, 2001, there is more of a need than ever for us to band together as a nation, and patriotic songs help us do just that.

The bottom line is that patriotic songs express better than anything else, with the exception of a gigantic American flag and a yellow “support our troops” ribbon, your dedication to your country and fierce opposition to the forces of terrorism that seek to destroy us.

Sometimes, if you haven’t sang in a while, it can be hard to start singing patriotic songs from memory.

You might not remember them, or you might be too shy to have your voice heard in public.

This might be true, even though you will be singing your patriotic songs for freedom and the triumph of America.

I recommend downloading patriotic tunes over the internet so that you can play them to your friends.

Once they hear these patriotic songs being sung, they will realize how much fun singing these melodies can be, and will gladly join with you to sing them together.

Downloading Patriotic Songs Online

When downloading patriotic songs, you must remember to do it in a responsible manner that shows your support for America.

Remember that, besides buying pot, nothing does more to support terrorism than pirating music or movies.

Not only do you fund the enemies of America when you pirate patriotic songs, but you hurt the artists running things at Virgin and EMI.

Therefore, the best way to download your music is through one of the legal downloading services.

You can even do searches for patriotic songs to find out which ones are available, and listen to samples free to decide if there is anything that you would like to download.

This way, you can benefit from your patriotic songs while ensuring that the artists who recorded these original works of art benefit from them too.

Pass On Our Patriotic Music to Your Children

patriotic songsBe sure to share patriotic songs with your kids as well.

Since the liberals took over the media, more and more kids are forced to forgo singing the national anthem or saying the pledge of allegiance in schools.

With the history they are taught in school today (“so-called history,” if you ask me) how will they learn about the true value of America without the patriotic songs you grew up with?

 

Now, enjoy the lyrics to our National Anthem,  “The Star Spangled Banner” by Francis Scott Key.

O! say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming:
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming,
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;

O! say, does that Star-spangled Banner still* wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam —
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream;

‘Tis the Star-spangled Banner, O! long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave.
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave!

And the Star-spangled Banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O! thus be it ever when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the foe’s desolation;
Bless’d with victory and peace, may our Heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation
Then conquer we must, for our cause it is just —
And this be our motto — “In God is our trust!”

And the Star-spangled Banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

I hope you and your family enjoy the 4th of July. But also, I implore you to remember what it took to make this nation great.
