God Bless the USA by Beyonce, Music Lyrics and Video

American R&B singer Beyoncé Knowles unveiled the patriotic power-ballad 'God Bless the USA' on Piers Morgan's CNN show last night (Thursday 5 May), with proceeds going to families of 9/11 victims.
Following the death of bin Laden, patriotism was spreading throughout the whole country, and R&B singer Beyoncé Knowles covered the song which proceeds will go to charity.

'God Bless the USA' was written and originally released in 1984 by country musician Lee Greenwood, and was played at this year's Republican party convention. Its popularity increased after 9/11, and it was re-released following the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Beyoncé's version will raise funds for the New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit. The singer originally recorded the track in 2008 for the Obama presidential campaign, but never released it. It seems likely the death of Osama bin Laden on Monday has been the spur for this release.

You can listen the song here.

Beyoncé Knowles - God Bless the USA

If tomorrow all the things were gone
Id worked for all my life
And I had to start again
With just my family by my side
Id thank my lucky stars, to be livin' here today
Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they cant take that away

And I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me

And I gladly stand up
next to you and defend her still today
Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the USA

From the lakes of Minnesota to the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea
From Detroit down to Houston, to New York to L.A
Well there's pride in every American heart
and it's time to make a change

That I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
and who gave that right to me

And I gladly stand up, next to you and defend her still today
Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the USA

And I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
and who gave that right to me

And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the USA
