America the beautiful di Ray Charles

Oh beautiful, for heroes proved,
In liberating strife,
Who more than self, our country loved,
And mercy more than life,
America, America, may God thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain devined
And you know when I was in school,
We used to sing it something like this, listen here:
Oh beautiful, for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties,
Above the fruited plain,
But now wait a minute, I’m talking about
America, sweet America,
You know, God done shed his grace on thee,
He crowned thy good, yes he did, in a brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea
You know, I wish I had somebody to help me sing this
(America, America, God shed his grace on thee)
America, I love you America, you see,
My God he done shed his grace on thee,
And you oughta love him for it,
Cause he, he, he, he, crowned thy good,
He told me he would, with brotherhood,
(From sea to shining sea)
Oh Lord, oh Lord, I thank you Lord
(Shining sea)

(America, America, America, America)
O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain
For purple moutain majesties above thy fruited plain!
America, America, God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea
(O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years)
(Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears)
America, America, God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea
