Patriotic Songs

Patriotic songs are so much fun to learn, and since my previous post was about the hymns we’ve learned, just for fun,here’s a list of the Patriotic Songs I’m pleased that my two big girls know by heart! Even Callie and Jasmine know a lot of these songs. In fact, Callie’s bus driver told me a couple of weeks ago that he thought he’d have to stop the bus and stand up and put his hand over his heart.

“Why?” I asked.

“Because she was singing the Star Spangled Banner, and she knew the words too!” he answered.

We do love our patriotic songs. Like the hymns we learn, these songs help tie us to our history, no matter our generation. Besides, knowing patriotic songs make 4th of July sing-along events something to truly look forward to!

The girls know the words to these and love singing along:

  • Yankee Doodle
  • Star Spangled Banner
  • America, the Beautiful
  • Battle Hymn of the Republic
  • The Old Gray Mare
  • Bicycle Built for Two
  • School Days
  • America
  • You’re a Grand Old Flag
  • This Land is Your Land
  • Home on the Range
