Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Born in the grip of oppression
I fought for my liberty
I paid with the blood of my people
Freedom has never been free

Allemande and weave
Now my door's always open, to dreamers and friends
Swing and promenade
But when I'm attacked, I protect and defend


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The head (side) two you square thru go 4 now
That corner lady do a dosado
You swing thru and then all the boys run
Bend your line, reverse flutter wheel
You dixie style to an ocean wave and then
Boys cross fold, swing and promenade
They believe in the virtues I stand for
My respect for humanity


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Because my name is America
I stand proud and free
My name is America
Don't tread on me

Allemande and weave
I can not be broken. I can not be shamed
America is my name


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Because my name is America
I stand proud and free
My name is America
Don't tread on me

Allemande and weave
If you hurt me I get stronger. And I rise up from the flames
America is my name

My Name Is America
 
 

Born in the crib of oppression
I fought for my liberty
I paid with the blood of my people
Freedom has never been free

Now my doors always open to dreamers and friends
But when I'm attacked, I'll protect and defend

Because my name is America
I stand proud and free
My name is America
Don't tread on me

I cannot be broken, I cannot be shamed
If you hurt me, I'll get stronger
And I'll rise up from the flames
And I'll always stand proud and free
I'm America, don't tread on me
I'm America, America is my name

My strength is not taken from others
Others gave it to me
They believe in the virtues I stand for
And my respect for humanity

For those who need me, I'll always be here
Those who would harm me, I face without fear

And I'll always stand proud and free
I'm America, don't tread on me
I'm America, America is my name

Lyrics by Kurt Orning.
Recorded by Todd Allen Herendeen.
