I haven't featured Neil Diamond on my Music Interludes in quite awhile, but someone mentioned Neil's name in a response to a post I made... A light bulb went off and I picked a great Neil Diamond song titled "America"... an awesome song about OUR COUNTRY, which recently has been unabashed by radicals around our country and around the world... Maybe this song will make up for some of that bashing... God Bless the United States of America and all that she stands for!!!! I'd like to dedicate this to my good friend MSG Felipe De Leon Brown for mentioning Neil Diamond's name and that He enjoys his music...
NOTE: This song was dedicated by Neil Diamond to his grandmother who made the journey from Kiev nearly 100 years ago, watch Neil perform "America" live at the Greek Theatre, part of the new Hot August Night III concert video and CD multi disc set...
"America" by Neil Diamond
Far, We've been traveling far Without a home But not without a star
Free, Only want to be free We huddle close Hang on to a dream
On the boats and on the planes They're coming to America Never looking back again, They're coming to America
Home Don't it seem so far away Oh, we're traveling light today In the eye of the storm In the eye of the storm
Home To a new and a shiny place Make our bed and we'll say our grace Freedom's light burning warm Freedom's light burning warm
Everywhere around the world They're coming to America Ev'ry time that flag's unfurled They're coming to America
Got a dream to take them there They're coming to America Got a dream they've come to share They're coming to America
They're coming to America They're coming to America They're coming to America They're coming to America Today, Today, Today, Today, Today
My country 'tis of thee (today) Sweet land of liberty (today) Of thee I sing (today) Of thee I sing Today, Today, Today Today, today, today......
