IAM RED AND WHITE AND BLUE
THESE ARE COLORS THAT RING TRUE
TO ALL IAM AND FEEL AND LOVE AND DO
I STAND PROUD AND BRAVE AND TALL
I WANT JUSTICE FOR US ALL
SO COLOR ME AMERICA, RED, WHITE AND BLUE

I SEE RED WHEN EVIL SPEAKS
SPILLING RED BLOOD ON OUR STREETS
AND I FEEL BLUE FROM GRIEF AND SORROW THAT IT BRINGS
BUT THE WHITE AND LIGHT OF LOVE
GOD'S OWN SPIRIT LIKE A DOVE
LIFT'S US UP AND HANDS TO US AN OLIVE BRANCH

OH, SWEET FREEDOM MAY YOU STAY
IN OUR LAND AND LIVES ALWAYS;
AND MAY PEACE AND BEAUTY FILL OUR HEARTS ANEW
AND MAY WE ALL STAND UP FOR YOU ;
MAY OUR THOUGHTS AND DEEDS BE TRUE
AND BE WORTHY OF YOUR STRIPES.... RED, WHITE AND BLUE.

IAM RED AND WHITE AND BLUE
THESE ARE COLORS THAT RING TRUE

AND CROWN THY GOOD IN BROTHERHOOD
FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA
OH, COLOR ME AMERICA
RED, WHITE AND BLUE, COLOR ME AMERICA
