Happy Birthday America!

.

O beautiful for spacious skies,

.

For amber waves of grain,

.

For purple mountain majesties

.

Above the fruited plain!

.

America! America!

.

God shed his grace on thee

.

And crown thy good with brotherhood

.

From sea to shining sea!

.

Happy Independence Day to all my American friends and family!

.
