My Country ' Tis Of Thee
Country Roads (Take Me Home)
America The Beautiful
Star Spangled Banner
Okay, even with Country Roads, I’m on board with this. Then we have:
Shower the People
Here Comes The Sun
Nights In White Satin
I beg your pardon???? This was followed by:
Bridge Over Troubled Water
Coast To Coast
Out of curiosity, I click to listen to a few snippets of song, and it’s freakin’ Zamphir. Okay.

Anyhow, the songs I've got on my potential list so far are:
Stars and Stripes Forever
This Land is Your Land (Woody Guthrie version)
Grand Old Flag
Yankee Doodle Dandy – James Cagney?
Johnny Comes Marching Home
Battle Hymn of the Republic
God Bless America
My Country Tis of Thee
Ballad of the Green Berets – S. Sgt. Barry Saddler
I have a feeling this is going to morph into including a bunch of the old standards. Musical cultural literacy, so to speak.
Got any suggestions?
