It's my Country

by Pearl Leona Sturgis

My home's in Pennsylvania
near the Mason/Dixon Line
But I can hang my hat just
anywhere I have a mind'...

From the streets of New York City
to that Great Pacific Shore...
It's my Country ...
Under God forevermore!

Here in Pennsylvania
starts a never ending road.
It winds through Colorado
all the way to Mexico.

Anywhere I wander ...
Anywhere I'm bound ...
I always find the road
Leading back to my hometown.

Bring your huddled masses
yearning to breathe free,
but don't give our milk and honey
to my Country's enemy!

Check their heart's true colors
and no matter where they're from,
if they don't love Old Glory
send them back where they belong!

It's my Country...
and I'm very proud to say...
I was born and raised here
in the Good Old USA!

I will fly the flag of freedom
and I want the world to see...
It's my Country ...
and it's HOME SWEET HOME to me.
