A Musical Tribute: Let Freedom Ring
The lyrics of this patriotic tune were written by Samuel Francis Smith in 1831.
My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From ev'ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!
Inspired by a guitar and vocal arrangement I heard on the radio, my arrangement gets hung up on the ending phrase:
"let freedom ring"
Seems appropriate for the holiday tomorrow.
Enjoy and Happy 4th of July to all those in the states.
