The sun comes up and shines like gold across the ocean waves A nation blessed with all the best as we begin our day We know the price of freedom, we see it every day We'll pay the debt, 'cause you can bet, we love the U.S.A.
This is our homeland, this is America We won't give up, we won't give in 'Cause this is America We trust in God, 'cause this is America Let's take a stand, we love this land This is America
The enemy has hurt us, violence knocked us to the ground An emptiness surrounds us, pain of loss is all around This threat to our freedom has renewed our will to fight Our battle cry is victory, we know we'll do what's right
Joe Bonsall's heartfelt comments about The Oak Ridge Boys' Grammy nominated inspiring, patriotic album, Colors...
"In 2003, The Oak Ridge Boys recorded a very special album project for the Spring Hill Music Group. Colors has become one of our most popular projects in the last decade. We recorded the CD to honor America and to pay tribute to those who have defended (and now defend) the freedoms of our great country. I believe we accomplished that goal with songs like An American Family, Colors, American Beauty, The Home Stretch, and This Is America."
