I'll tell you a story and it's a true one 
And I'll tell it like you understand
And I ain't gonna talk like some history maid

I look out and I see a land
Young and lovely, hard and strong
For fifty thousand years we've danced her praises
Prayed our thanks and we've just begun
Yes, yes

Yes this is my country
Young and growing
Free and flowing, see to see
Yes, this is my country
Ripe and bearing miracles 
in ever pond and tree
Her spirit walks the high country
She's giving free wild samples
And setting an example how to give

Yes this is my country
Retching and turning
She is like a baby learning how to live
i can stand upon a hill at dawn
Look all around me
Feel her surround me
Soldier blue
Can't you see her life has just begun 
Beating inside us, telling us she's here to guide us

Soldier Blue, Soldier Blue, Soldier Blue
Can't you see that there's another way to love her

This is my country
And I sprang from her
And I'm learning how to count upon her
Tall trees and the corn is high country
I guess I love her
And I'm learning how to take care of her

When the news stories get me down
I take a drink of freedom to think of
North America from toe to crown
It's never long before
I know just why I belong here

Soldier Blue, Soldier Blue
Can't you see that there's another way to love her
