***  A NEW YEAR ***  

  ***A NEW AMERICA***  

*** A NEW CRY FOR FREEDOM ***


 

 The tragedy of 9-11-2001 has touched virtually everyone in the world. The unfathomable lack of regard for human life and liberty has brought a renewed awareness of evil to the people of America. Although, most of us are extremely grateful for the bounty of our beloved country, we oft times get caught up in dealing with the realities of life.

 Although "A New Cry For Freedom" is about the September tragedy, the message is about the incredible spirit of Americans. It is about our hopes for the future, our children's future, and the world they will inherit from us

 The final chorus of this Song evokes such passion and feelings of patriotism, 

 there is no denying there's

A NEW CRY FOR FREEDOM

 

                                                 

  *** A NEW CRY FOR FREEDOM ***

  

THE RIVER RISES HIGH SPILLING OVER

WITH ALL THE TEARS WE’VE SHED

RUSH’S DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAINS TO THE VALLEYS

WITH HEAVY HEARTS WE BOW OUR HEADS

BURNING BUILDING’S TWISTED METAL DISBELIEF AND FEAR 

NO TIME FOR GOODBYES

THE WORLD WE’VE KNOWN CHANGED FOREVER

THE DAY THE EAGLE FLEW WITH TEARS IN HIS EYES

 

NOW THERE’S A NEW CRY FOR FREEDOM

AND OUR FLAG FLIES HIGH ONCE MORE

SIDE BY SIDE HAND IN HAND ALL ACROSS THIS LAND

FROM SHORE TO SHORE

WE’RE SINGING GOD BLESS AMERICA

EVEN STRONGER THAN BEFORE

 AND PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE OLD RED WHITE AND BLUE

AND THE EAGLE SOARS

 

OUR HEARTS FILLED WITH SO MUCH SORROW

NO WAY TO UNDERSTAND

SO WE SAY A PRAYER FOR THE LIVES LOST THERE

AS WE REACH OUT OUR HELPING HANDS

WE MUST FACE THE FACE OF EVIL

WE MUST SEE THROUGH ITS DISGUISE

SO WE ENTER THE FIGHT WITH ALL OF OUR MIGHT 

AND THE EAGLE FLIES

                               

NOW THERE’S A NEW CRY FOR FREEDOM

AND OUR FLAG FLIES HIGH ONCE MORE

SIDE BY SIDE HAND IN HAND EVERY WOMEN CHILD AND MAN

FROM SHORE TO SHORE

WE’RE SINGING GOD BLESS AMERICA

EVEN STRONGER THAN BEFORE

AND PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE OLD RED, WHITE AND BLUE

AND THE EAGLE SOARS

  

SPREAD YOUR WINGS PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN

EVERY MAN AND WOMAN, EVERY BOY AND GIRL

SPREAD YOUR WINGS

FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR WORLD

  

THERE’S A NEW CRY FOR FREEDOM

AND OUR FLAG FLIES HIGH ONCE MORE

SIDE BY SIDE HAND IN HAND ALL ACROSS THIS LAND

FROM SHORE TO SHORE

WE’RE SINGING GOD BLESS AMERICA

EVEN STRONGER THAN BEFORE

AND PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE OLD RED, WHITE AND BLUE

AND THE EAGLE SOARS
