O, America Lyrics

Music: William Joseph
Words: Brendan Graham

O, America you’re calling,
I can hear you calling me:
You are calling me to be true to thee,
True to thee… I will be.

O, America no weeping,
Let me heal your wounded heart:
I will keep you in my keeping,
Till there be… a new start.

And I will answer you, and I will take your hand,
And lead you… to the sun:
And I will stand by you…do all that I can do,
And we will be… as one.

O, America I hear you,
From your prairies to the sea,
From your mountains grand, and all through this land,
You are beautiful to me.

And… O, America you’re calling,
I can hear you calling me:
You are calling me to be true to thee,
True to thee… I will be.

And I will answer you, and I will take your hand,
And lead you… to the sun:
And I will stand by you… do all that I can do,
And we will be…as one.

O, America you’re calling…
I will ever answer thee.

Welcome to 'O, America!' from Celtic Woman

In tribute to pursuing the American dream and due to overwhelming demand from our fans, Celtic Woman are delighted to announce that we will release the inspiring and emotional song 'O, America!' as a digital download and ringtune on June 23rd.

'O, America!' was written by Brendan Graham and William Joseph exclusively for Celtic Woman. It has been a highlight of our current 75-date Isle of Hope US concert tour.

As our youngest member Chloe explained at a recent concert,

"'O, America!' is a dedication to you to thank you for being the first country to embrace us as Celtic Woman. We feel as though we are part of your family now and for that we are very honored and proud. You are our true inspiration!"

As your new President Barack Obama eloquently said 'We know that there are some things we can't do on our own. We know that there are some things we do better together'

So tell us here how Celtic Woman and the song O America! has inspired you and maybe your words will inspire others.
