America, My Country, I Adore.
Copyright, 1896, by Moo J. Mendel.
Words by Moe J. Mendel. Music by Henry W. Palmer.

America, America, my country, I adore;
Forever I shall love it, from shore to shore,
The peer of all the lands, where I cast my lot,
America, my country, my favorite spot.
'Tis the land of my birth, and delight to say
I stand ever ready to defend it to-day.
Our country is a glorious land of love and liberty.
And may our people ever dwell in prosperity.
May prosperity e'er shine on us as it never has before,
Oh America, my country, my country, I adore.

Chorus.
America, America, my country, I adore,
Forever I shall love it, from shore to shore.
May our flag of freedom ever float, in the breeze;
May our staunch, big war-ships be victorious on the seas;
May our boys be gallant, gallant and ever true,
And bravely stand forever by the Red. White and Blue;
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah, for the Red. White and Blue,
And bravely stand forever by the Red, While and Blue, Hurrah!

America, America, my country, I adore;
Forever I shall love it, from shore to shore.
May our mothers ne'er endure despair or pain
To see a loving husband or a son go to war again.
Our country is a land of peace, and with a future bright;
And is our cause a just one, we must, uphold our rights;
We'll never be too hasty, and with justice on our side,
So if there be a conflict, to vict'ry we are sure to ride.
To the memory of George Washington and all his soldiers brave,
May God forever bless them, for our country they did save.-Chorus.
