about

America Standing Tall. No American can ever erase the mental image of the Twin Towers' collapse. Parallels to the attack on America exactly 60 years earlier are inescapable. This ballad commemorates the story of a strong and enduring America still standing tall in the aftermath of both disasters.

Thanks for "Standing Tall For America."

LYRICS:

The whole world still remembers - the 7th of December
America's bright blue skies turned red with fire
Over calm Pacific water - a place they call Pearl Harbor
No warning came, 1941
Then freedom called a nation the "Greatest Generation"
Stood as one America heard the call
When the war was finally over the whole world watched in wonder at
America standing straight and proud and tall

And America's still standing tall tonight
With freedom's beacon shining strong and bright
And if I'm the last man standing, I'll stand for all that's right
America's still standing tall tonight

Now the world will long remember - the 11th of September
America's bright blue skies burned red with fire
Over calm Atlantic water our peaceful New York harbor
No warning came - the year 2001
Now freedom calls a nation - and the latest generation
Of Americans will stand and hear the call
And when there's no more terror the world will watch in wonder
At America standing straight and proud and tall

America's still standing tall tonight
With freedom's beacon shining strong and bright
And if I'm the last man standing, I'll stand for all that's right
America's still standing tall tonight
