    So many good songs. A hell of a musician. Will be missed, but music lives on.

    RIP Charlie Daniels. "You just go and lay your hand on a Pittsburgh Steeler's fan...." He was always a favorite here in Pittsburgh.

    One of the kindness humble God fearing American patriot you could ever meet. His support of our troops second to none. You will be missed.

    Saw him in concert 5 years ago, still performed a great show. Just played "Devil went down to Georgia " on the jukebox last night, while everyone sang along. I don't think I'll forget that memory for a long time now.

    This song was played Friday night at the Independence Day celebration held at Mt. Rushmore during the fireworks.

    That's a concert I would've enjoyed, but had the opportunity.

    RIP

    Saw him live in around 1975. "The south's gonna do it again" kind of says it all. RIP Charlie.

    My Beautiful America - Independence Day 2020
    This year, as we celebrate the 244th birthday of the greatest nation the world has ever known, we are beset with many problems, some of our making and some we have no control over.



    But, be that as it is, America is still the greatest and I want to express my personal feelings about our beloved country, its magnificence, its beauty and its diverse population.



    Wishing all Americans a happy and reflective Independence Day.



    Charlie Daniels





    My Beautiful America


    Have you ever spent the late afternoon,

    Watching the purple shadows deepen in the Arizona desert?

    Or seen a herd of Elk plow their way

    Through waist-deep snow on a cold Colorado dawn?

    Did you ever see the sun go down in Hawaii

    Or seen the stormy waves break over the rockbound coast of Maine

    Or have you ever see an eagle fly up out of the mists of Alaska

    Or a big October moon hanging full over the still Dakota badlands?


    Have you ever tasted the gumbo in New Orleans, barbecue in Carolina

    Or the chicken wings in Buffalo?

    Have you ever had Brunswick stew in Macon, or cornbread in Birmingham?

    Or briskets slow cook over hill country mesquite wood?


    Did you ever drink the water from a gurgling branch in Utah,

    Or stand on the mountain above El Paso Del Norte

    And see the lights twinkling clear over into Mexico

    Did you ever jingle horses in the pre-dawn stillness of a perfect Texas day

    And watch their shod hooves kicking up sparks on the volcanic rock?


    Or tended a trotline on a foggy Carolina morning,

    Or heard the distant love song of a lovesick whippoorwill

    On a pristine Tennessee late night?

    Have you seen the faces on Mount Rushmore or stood at the Vietnam monument?


    Have you ever crossed the mighty Mississippi,

    Or been to the Daddy of ‘Em All in Cheyenne, Wyoming

    Or seen the mighty Vols run out on the football field on a chilly autumn afternoon?


    Did you ever see the Chicago skyline from Lakeshore Drive at night

    Or the New England foliage in the fall,

    Or the summer beauty of the Shenandoah Valley,

    Or Indiana covered with new snow?


    Did you ever seen a herd of wild horses running free

    Across the empty spaces of Nevada?

    Or caught a walleyed pike out of a cold Wisconsin stream,

    Or marveled at the tall ships docked in the harbor at Baltimore?


    Did you ever see the early morning dew sparkling on the bluegrass,

    Or the wind stir the wheat fields on a hot Kansas afternoon

    Or driven the lonely stretches of old Route 66

    Have you ever heard the church bells peal their call to worship

    On an early Sunday, in some small town in the Deep South?


    Or passed through the Redwood Forest just as the sun was going down

    Have you ever been to Boise or Baxley or Beaufort or Billings?

    Have you ever passed through Sanford or Suffolk or San Angelo

    Have you ever seen the falls at Niagara

    The Ice Palace in Saint Paul

    Or the Gateway to the West?


    This then is America!

    The land God blesses with everything

    And no Eiffel Tower: no Taj Mahal,

    No Alps, No Andes

    No native hut, nor Royal Palace -

    Can rival her awesome beauty,

    Her diverse population, her monolithic majesty.

    America the Free

    America the mighty

    America the beautiful


    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America

    And to the republic for which it stands

    One nation under God, indivisible

    with liberty and justice for all.


    What do you think?


    Pray for our troops, and for the peace of Jerusalem.


    God Bless America


    — Charlie Daniels
