Lee Greenwood: We can't take God out of the song
God bless the U.S.A http://youtu.be/Q65KZIqay4E
(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - Lee Greenwood, the singer of “God Bless the U.S.A.,” responded to the Massachusetts elementary school that removed the word “God” from his popular patriotic song, and then amid controversy pulled the song altogether from the children’s concert.
In a statement released on Thursday, Greenwood said, “"Maybe the school should have asked the parents their thoughts before changing the lyrics to the song. They could have even asked the writer of the song, which I of course would have said you can't change the lyrics at all or any part of the song. The most important word in the whole piece of music is the word God, which is also in the title God Bless The USA. We can't take God out of the song, we can't take God out of The Pledge of Allegiance.....
Comment....Oh my God, where is this country going when a school would even consider letting a bunch of no brain kids even think of doing something as outrageous as this. Thank you Mr. Greenwood and I sincerely mean that...If its at all possible do not let them sing the song.
