Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Martina McBride

July 4th, 2010 at 10:23pm

It only happens once every seven years or so that the 4th of July falls on a Sunday…so given the timing, I can’t let the day go by without giving the Musician Of The Week award to Martina McBride. The feature song, not surprisingly, is Independence Day.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all of my American readers a very happy Independence Day.

Well she seemed all right by dawn’s early light
‘Though she looked a little worried and weak
She tried to pretend he wasn’t drinkin’ again
But daddy left the proof on her cheek
And I was only eight years old that summer
And I always seemed to be in the way
So I took myself down to the fair in town
On Independence Day

Well word gets around in a small, small town
They said he was a dangerous man
But mama was proud and she stood her ground
She knew she was on the losin’ end
Some folks whispered, some folks talked
But everybody looked the other way
When time ran out there was no one about
On Independence Day

Let Freedom ring
Let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong
Let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay, it’s Independence Day

Well she lit up the sky that fourth of July
By the time that the firemen come
They just put out the flames
And took down some names
And sent me to the county home
Now I aint sayin’ it’s right or it’s wrong
But maybe it’s the only way
Talk about your revolution
It’s Independence Day

Let Freedom ring
Let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong
Let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay, it’s Independence Day

Roll the stone away
It’s Independence Day

Samuel
