Traditional Music Words by Samuel Francis Smith VERSE 1 G Em Am D My country! 'tis of thee, G Em Am G Em Sweet land of liberty! Am G D G Of thee I sing; Land where my fathers died, D7 Land of the pilgrims' pride, G From ev'ry mountainside C G D7 G Let freedom ring! VERSE 2 G Em Am D My native country, thee, G Em Am G Em Land of the noble free, Am G D G Thy name I love; I love thy rocks and rills, D7 Thy woods and templed hills, G My heart with rapture thrills, C G D7 G Like that above. VERSE 3 G Em Am D Let music swell the breeze, G Em Am G Em And ring from all the trees Am G D G Sweet freedom's song; Let mortal tongues awake; D7 Let all that breathe partake; G Let rocks their silence break, C G D7 G The sound prolong. VERSE 4 G Em Am D Our fathers' God! to thee, G Em Am G Em Author of liberty, Am G D G To Thee we sing; Long may our land be bright, D7 With freedom's holy light, G Protect us by Thy might, C G D7 G Great God, our King.
