8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
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.
God Bless America, my home sweet home.
