Lyrics: “Our Country”

Well I can stand beside

Ideals I think are right

And I can stand beside

The idea to stand and fight

I do believe

There’s a dream for everyone

This is our country

There’s room enough here

For science to live

And there’s room enough here

For religion to forgive

And try to understand

All the people of this land

This is our country

From the east coast

To the west coast

Down the Dixie Highway

Back home

This is our country

That poverty could be

Just another ugly thing

And bigotry would be

Seen only as obscene

And the ones that run this land

Help the poor and common man

This is our country

From the east coast

To the west coast

Down the Dixie Highway

Back home

This is our country

The dream is still alive

Some day it will come true

And this country it belongs

To folks like me and you

So let the voice of freedom

Sing out through this land

This is our country

From the east coast

To the west coast

Down the Dixie Highway

Back home

This is our country

From the east coast

To the west coast

Down the Dixie Highway

Back home

This is our country
