The Lyrics

I wrote this in response to what is going on in Arizona. This is not meant to be a jab, I wrote it with full seriousness in mind.
A cry goes out, in bleak distress
The land we know is all a-mess
At the line, the line, the border line
Who'll guard the land they love divine?

refrain:
America, put your mind at ease
America, put your mind at ease
Firm and true the watch, the watch at the line
Firm and true the watch, the watch at the line

The Rio Grand, flows red with blood
of comrades slain by foreign thugs.
We swear by honor's sacred name
They're deaths shall not have been in vain

refrain

Our motives pure, our is cause is just
In holy God we place our trust
Our watch with banners high and true
Will ever fly red, white, and blue

refrain

The cry goes out, the time is nigh
Our flag waves faithful, true, and high
At the line, the line, the border line
We'll guard the land we love divine.

refrain
