My Name Is America    (EGO 111)  Paul Cote (www.paulcotecaller.com)

OPENER



Grand Square
Born in the grip of oppression, I fought for my liberty
I paid with the blood of my people, freedom has never been free
ALLEMANDE and WEAVE
Now my door's always open, to dreamers and friends
(SWING and PROMENADE)
But when I'm attacked, I protect and defend

FIGURE



The (HEAD/SIDE) two you SQUARE THRU go FOUR now.
That corner lady do a DO-SI-DO
You SWING THRU and then all the BOYS RUN
BEND YOUR LINE, REVERSE FLUTTERWHEEL
You DIXIE STYLE to an ocean wave and then
BOYS CROSS FOLD, SWING and PROMENADE
They believe in the virtues I stand for
My respect for humanity

MIDDLE BREAK



Grand Square
Because my name is America. I stand proud and free.
My name is America. Don't tread on me.
ALLEMANDE and WEAVE
I can not be broken. I can not be shamed.
America is my name.

CLOSER



Grand Square
Because my name is America. I stand proud and free.
My name is America. Don't tread on me.
ALLEMANDE and WEAVE
If you hurt me I get stronger. And I rise up from the flames.
America is my name.

TAG



America is my name
