AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

AMERICA (My Country 'tis of Thee)

GOD BLESS AMERICA

BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC

THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND

WHEN JOHNNY COME MARCHING HOME

WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN

YANKEE DOODLE

Or how about listening to some patriotic music like…The 1812 Overture or Stars and Stripes Forever?

This Is My Country
Baltimore Area Council

This is my country!
Land of my birth.
This is my country!
Grandest on earth.
I pledge thee my allegiance,
America the bold
For this is my country
To have and to hold.

Grand Old Flag
Great Salt Lake Council
Music and lyrics by George M. Cohan

You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

I Love The Mountains
Baltimore Area Council
I love the mountains,

I love the rolling hills,
I love the flowers,
I love the daffodils,
I love the campfire
When all the lights are low
Boom-de-adda, boom-de-adda
Boom-de-adda, boom-da-adda

(sung as a round)

The Happy Wanderer
Baltimore Area Council

I love to go a—wandering,
Along the mountains track,
And as I go, I love to sing,
My knapsack on my back.

Chorus:
Val-de-ri, Val-de-ra,
Val-de-ri, Val-de-ra-ha ha ha ha ha,
Val-de-ri, Val-de-ra.
My knapsack on my back.

(Last line of chorus is last line of preceding verse)

I love to wander by the stream,
That dances in the sun.
So joyously it calls to me,
“Come! Join my happy song!” (Chorus)

Chorus

I wave my hat to all I meet,
And they wave back to me,
And blackbirds call so loud and sweet,
From ev’ry greenwood tree. (Chorus)

Chorus

Oh, may I go a-wandering
Until the day I die,
Oh, may I always laugh and sing
Beneath God’s clear blue sky (Chorus)
