Lee Greenwood’s Impromptu ‘God Bless the USA’ with Army Chorus is AMAZING! [VIDEO]

Lee Greenwood

In this patriotic, flashback moment, legendary country singer Lee Greenwood busted out an a cappella, impromptu version of his iconic “God Bless the USA” with the U.S. Army Chorus between periods at the 2015 NHL’s “Winter Classic.”

A smartphone captured the spontaneous event, which was performed off-stage in a concourse at Nationals Park, and as Newsbusters reported, Gabrielle Dube, an intern for the event, posted it on YouTube with the following description:

“After Lee Greenwood’s performance during the intermission, he met with the Military Choir to take pictures and it sparked an impromptu a cappella version of ‘God Bless the USA.’ Amazing!”

Watch below and if you want to sing along with a tear in your eye, like I did, I’ve provided the lyrics to this All-American classic which honors our country along with all the brave souls who gave their lives so that we may be free.

Perfect for Memorial Day:

If tomorrow all the things were gone
I worked for all my life
And I had to start again
With just my children and my wife

I thank my lucky stars
To be living here today
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom
And they can’t take that away

And I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota
To the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas
From sea to shining sea

From Detroit down to Houston
And New York to L.A.
Where’s pride in every American heart
And it’s time we stand and say

That I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

And I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
