I Am A Patriot

One thought on “I Am A Patriot

  1. And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous

    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous, someday

    I was walking with my brother
    And he wondered what’s on my mind
    I said what I believe in my soul
    It ain’t what I see with my eyes
    And we can’t turn our heads this time

    I am a patriot and I love my country
    ‘Cause my country is all I know
    I want to be with my family
    With people who understand me
    I got nowhere else to go

    I am a patriot
    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous, someday

    And I was talking with my sister, she looked so fine
    I said, “Baby, what’s on your mind?”
    And she said, “I want to run like the lion
    Released from their cages, released from their rages
    Burning in my heart tonight”

    I am a patriot and I love my country
    ‘Cause my country is all I know

    And I ain’t no communist
    And I ain’t no capitalist
    And I ain’t no socialist
    And I sure ain’t no imperialist

    And I ain’t no democrat
    And I ain’t no republican
    And I only know one party
    And its name is freedom
    Listen to me, I am, I am, I am

    I am a patriot
    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous

    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous
    And the river opens for the righteous
