I pledge allegiance to this flag / And if that bothers you, well that’s too bad / But if you got pride and you’re proud you do / Hey, we could use some more like me and you / Where the stars and stripes and the eagle fly

So lay me down / In that open field out on the edge of town / And know my soul / Is where my momma always prayed that it would go / If you’re readin’ this I’m already home.

8.  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Darryl Worley[/lastfm] – “Have You Forgotten”

Have you forgotten how it felt that day? / To see your homeland under fire / And her people blown away / Have you forgotten when those towers fell? / We had neighbors still inside going thru a living hell / And you say we shouldn’t worry ’bout bin Laden / Have you forgotten?

7.  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Alan Jackson[/lastfm] – “Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning”

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day / Were you in the yard with your wife and children / Or working on some stage in L.A. / Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke / Risin’ against that blue sky / Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor / Or did you just sit down and cry?

5.  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]John Michael Montgomery[/lastfm] – “Letters From Home”

I hold it up and show my buddies / Like we ain’t scared and our boots ain’t muddy / And they all laugh / Like there’s something funny / ‘Bout the way I talk  / When I say, “Mama sends her best y’all” / I fold it up and put it in my shirt / Pick up my gun and get back to work / And it keeps me drivin’ on / Waitin’ on letters from home
