    THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND
    words and music by Woody Guthrie

    Chorus:
    This land is your land, this land is my land
    From California, to the New York Island
    From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
    This land was made for you and me

    As I was walking a ribbon of highway
    I saw above me an endless skyway
    I saw below me a golden valley
    This land was made for you and me

    Chorus

    I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
    To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
    And all around me a voice was sounding
    This land was made for you and me

    Chorus

    The sun comes shining as I was strolling
    The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
    The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
    This land was made for you and me

    Chorus

    As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there
    And that sign said - no tress passin'
    But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
    Now that side was made for you and me!

    Chorus

    In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
    Near the relief office - I see my people
    And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
    If this land's still made for you and me.

    Chorus

    God Bless America
    by Irving Berlin
    "While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
    Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
    Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
    As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. "

    God Bless America,
    Land that I love.
    Stand beside her, and guide her
    Thru the night with a light from above.
    From the mountains, to the prairies,
    To the oceans, white with foam
    God bless America, My home sweet home.

    Gonna put on my starry crown;
    Down by the riverside
    Gonna study war no more.

    Official Song of the
    State of California

    I thought for years this was written by Manny Klein, trumpet player and director of the orchestra that played for the Academy awards when they had live musicians in the pit.
    Oops! Wrong again. This IS the official state song, not 'California Here I Come.'

    I love You California
    Written by F. B. Silverwood
    Composed by A. F. Frankenstein

    I love you, California, you're the greatest state of all
    I love you in the winter, summer, spring, and in the fall.
    I love your fertile valleys; your dear mountains I adore,
    I love your grand old ocean and I love her rugged shore.

    chorus

    I love your redwood forests - love your fields of yellow grain,
    I love your summer breezes, and I love your winter rain,
    I love you, land of flowers; land of honey, fruit and wine,
    I love you, California; you have won this heart of mine.

    chorus

    I love your old gray Missions - love your vineyards streteching far,
    I love you, California, with your Golden Gate ajar,
    I love your purple sunsets, love your skies of azure blue,
    I love you, California; I just can't help loving you.

    chorus

    I love you, Catalina - you are very dear to me,
    I love you, Tamalpais, and I love Yosemite,
    I love you, Land of Sunshine, half your beauties are untold,
    I loved you in my childhood, and I'll love you when I'm old.

    chorus

    When the snow crowned Golden Sierras
    Keep their watch o'er the valleys bloom.
    It is there I would be in our land by the sea,
    Ev'ry breeze bearing rich perfume,
    It is here nature gives of her rarest,
    It is Home Sweet Home to me.
    And I know when I die I shall breathe my last sigh
    For my sunny California.

    http://memory.loc.gov/const/declar.html
    WHEN in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to
    assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the
    Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.

    WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are
    Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness -- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the
    Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new
    Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
    Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn,
    that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long
    Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to
    throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the
    Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present King of Great- Britain is a History of repeated Injuries and
    Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
