US Patriotic Song Lyrics

Here’s a nifty website I ran across as I looking for the lyrics to “America the Beautiful.”  It has a list of US patriotic songs and complete lyrics.

Strangely enough, I knew the most lyrics of the Marine Hymn — I’m not sure why either.  Eitherway, I was very surprised at how many verses the songs have and the fact that I only know the first verse of most of the songs.  “Yankee Doodle Dandy” is a mystery to me — it gives my the image of a patriotic “Pirates of the Caribbean.”  “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” is powerfully descriptive, but I must say I like the clean straight forward nature of the Marine Hymn best.

Anyhow, if you have 15-minutes, take a quick look at the songs.  There all very nice!
