This is America,
A land where dreams can be
A land where hope is strong
And men are free.

This is America,
A land of bluer skies
A land of brotherhood
Where mountains rise.

From this glory,
From this power,
Came a man,
Called Eisenhower.

This is America,
The greatest land on earth,
Where men have fought and died,
For what it's worth.

This is America,
Where common men are kings,
Where common laws are fair,
And folks do mythic things.

And from this glory,
From this power,
Came a man
Called Eisenhower.

Bridge
You can find them in pictures and newsreels
You can talk to the women and the men
But as memory fades into history,
We watch history happen again.

This is America,
We have the power to grow.
We have the will to win.
But we have the right to know.

And from this glory,
From this power,
In this nation's darkest hour.
Thank a man called Eisenhower.

From this glory,
From this power,
Came a man called Eisenhower.
