Carrie UnderwoodIndependence Day

Well she seemed alright by dawn's early light Though she looked a little worried and weak She tried to pretend he wasn't drinkin' again But daddy left the proof on her cheek And I was only eight years old that summer And I always seemed to be in the way So I took myself down to the fair in town On Independence Day Well word gets around in a small, small town They said he was a dangerous man But mama was proud and she stood her ground She knew she was on the losin' end Some folks whispered, some folks talked But everybody looked the other way And when time ran out, there was no one about On Independence Day [Chorus] Let freedom ring Let the white dove sing Let the whole world know That today is a day of reckoning Let the weak be strong Let the right be wrong Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay On Independence Day Well she lit up the sky the fourth of July By the time that the firemen came They just put out the flames and took down some names And sent me to the county home Now I ain't sayin' it's right or it's wrong But maybe it's the only way Talk about your revolution It's Independence Day [Chorus] © 2015
