Lyrics by Al Liberio

verse 1
It was set down long ago, by some thoughtful men,
the pursuit of happiness.
Where liberty, and poverty,
would always be opposites.
To build a life, like none before,
to earn your own success.
Where freedom reigns, across the plains,
into the wilderness.

verse 2
Well, the land was wide, the land was free,
and the land was full of life.
And the tyranny, of ancient times,
had passed on through the night.
It was a new day, a new world,
a life with a Holy King.
Where freedom reigns, across the plains.
You can hear the mountains sing.

chorus
This is the Land of Freedom!
This is the land of hope!
This is the land where dreams come true,
where families bloom,
where the future has no holds,
where the days are full of hope,
where the days are full of hope.

verse 3
The years went by, new kings took hold,
and kingdoms they did rise.
They taxed all lives, and they took the homes.
They said the law was on their side.
Said the law would be their guide.
What’s happened to this Land of Freedom,
where a man can build his dream?
What’s happened to this land of liberty;
now we’re taxed on all we see
No more can a man use what he earns,
to do what he sees best.
The kings grab more, and they call it law,
through the plains and wilderness.
And they say it’s for the best.

verse 4
What were our forefathers fighting for,
when they settled in this land.
They stood against those taxes then,
it’s time to take that stand.
To live our lives, like those before,
to fight for liberty.
To break the ways, of taxing chains,
from sea to shining sea!

chorus
This is The Land of Freedom!
This is the land of hope!
This is the land where dreams come true,
where families bloom,
where the future has no holds,
where the days are full of hope,
where the days are full of hope.

This is The Land of Freedom!
This is the land of hope!
This is the land our fathers fought for!
This is the land that we call our home!

This is The Land of Freedom!
This is the land of hope!
This is the land our fathers fought for!
This is the land that we call our home!
