This is My Country by Frankie Ghee

This is my country And I am so grateful

To have lived in a time when I am safe and free

I am safe dream, and I am free to try

To change my world with hope and speak as I believe

Chorus:

And I am lucky I know to rest my feet on this soil

And take as owed to me my rights and my liberty

And I am lucky I know to plant my feet on this soil

And take as owed to me my rights and my liberty

Through proud and shameful history, This is what we have come to be

We have grown into this nation free of kings

Peace and great prosperity, famine, war and travesty

Have forged the tools that we might shape our destiny

chorus:

Bridge

(This is the bridge from the rock version of the song,  I haven’t used these with my acoustic set)

How many people had to die so that I could live this life?

If I they knew how I would, would they even try?

How many people sold their soul so I could spend this pot of gold?

Would they pay the price if they knew what I would buy?

This is my country, and I am so grateful
