Here is a sweet, country-blues track about falling in love on the 4th of July!

Verse 1

It was Independence Day

On the village green

I kissed you at the pancake breakfast

We were falling in love and barely eighteen

Horns, drums and 21 guns

Led the parade

As people lined up on Main Street

In their folding chairs sipping lemonade



Red, white and blue

Red, white and blue

All the memories of the day I fell in love with you

Are painted red, white and blue


Verse 2

Then we walked along the river

To the country fair

Strolled the lights of the Midway

Hand ‘n hand in the evening air

There was lipstick on my collar

Fireworks filled your eyes

We swore with sweet, summer wine

To always remember that 4th of July


Repeat Chorus



So, we bought a little house in the heart of town

And it’s where we settled down

We’ve got front row seats every year

Stars and strips march through town 


Repeat Chorus.
