This song and video, written, performed, and recorded by fellow FReeper "Quill Pen", is a tribute to America and those who risk their lives to keep America free.
From the chorus:
It's A Free Country, where dreams come trueI encourage you to check the song video out on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOx9GOmdqhA
'Cause once you've tasted freedom, a cage will never do.
It's A Free Country, as long as we live and breath
So don't tread on me, no, don't tread on me
It's A Free Country.
This song is the first track from her new CD "Horse Sense". Information about the song and CD, and links to listen or download a copy, are on the FR profile page of Quill Pen.
This is a song that all of America needs to hear! It is dedicated to America, and to the troops that defend our freedom.

Onyx, this is the song I wrote to you about a few months ago when it first was recorded. I notice that there is a new Sarah Palin Ping List, could you please put me on it? Thanks!
Jim, this song was recommended by Onyx as one you would enjoy. I hope you do!
I was already here when you pinged me! I spotted your thread straight away!
God bless you, dear friend!
Yes, adding you to Sarah’s New List right now!
Oh and that should probably be MIND MELD...LOL.
“Adding comments has been disabled for this video.”
I gave it a LIKE!
Well, tonight it might just be "mind melt"! :)
Thank you SO much for pinging the list. That'll get some comments, I'm sure.
I think Quill Pen is still on "comment review" by the Mods. She just wrote to me, to say that her comments aren't showing up on the thread. Whom do I contact to help her get past that? Thanks!!
They got country music up there in New Yawk?
Who’d a thunk it.
Quill Pen is unable to reply at the moment, since her comments are being "reviewed" by the Mods. No idea why; hopefully that will change quickly.
But as her neighbor, I will tell you that Country Music is alive and well in New Yawk!
I just realized that I can tell Quill Pen I love the song!
DUH on me!
FReepers, give Quill Pen’s song several listens!
IIRC, you have to have a minimum of ten coments before you’re not under review, but I’m only going on a couple of newer members’ information to me who joined Sarah List right after joining FR. I’m not a moderator and I’ve never been a moderator.
Oh onyx, you make me feel like family here on the FReepathon threads
I drove through Alabama, New York one time.
“It’s a free country. But you can’t live in it for nothing’’.— Will Rogers.
I like it a lot! Thanks for sharing. :^)
As soon as the Mods see fit to release her so that her comments are visible, she will reply herself.
I'm real proud to have the opportunity to let my fellow FReepers hear my song and watch me sing it on YouTube. I am especially interested in what they think about it.
And remember, Don't Tread On Me !!!
Hey Onyx, Dayglored, I'm out of quarantine!!!! The Admin Mods looked kindly upon me, and I am now able to respond by myself! Thanks for your help!
Well -- if the Mods listened to your song, how could they not recognize you as a solid, Conservative FReeper!?!
I am so glad you like my song!!!! It means so much to me!!!
"It's A Free Country" - Carolyn Owen (C) 2011 Carolyn Owen Somewhere in America there's someone reaching up Striving hard to raise the bar to fill that golden cup And wherever there's a need there's a will to create And someone there to raise a hand and step up to the plate It's A Free Country - where dreams come true 'Cause once you've tasted freedom a cage will never do It's A Free Country - as long as we live and breathe So don't tread on me, no don't tread on me It's A Free Country Anywhere in America there's still pursuit of liberty With hands and heart and hope - breathing the blessed air of democracy And as the centuries relentlessly roll - we must stand tall against our foes Standing true, standing strong - and tyranny oppose It's A Free Country - where dreams come true 'Cause once you've tasted freedom a cage will never do It's A Free Country - as long as we live and breathe So don't tread on me, no don't tread on me It's A Free Country So say a prayer for America - because we really care We believe in freedom for all the world to share We live to be free, we've died to be free It's A free country It's A Free Country - where dreams come true 'Cause once you've tasted freedom a cage will never do It's A Free Country - as long as we live and breathe So don't tread on me, no don't tread on me It's A Free Country
It's "...as long as we live and breathe", not "breath".
Thanks to FReeper TXnMA for letting me know, and apologies to Quill Pen for the error.
I liked her song and I liked her other one too. She likes horses and seems to know what she is doing around them. I also like her horse. Is that enough likes for this post onyx? LOL I like you too, onyx.
Thanks!!! I’m so glad you like my music and videos!!!
I have been riding horse since I was 5 years old. My first horse jumped 5’2” and we were on the horse show circuit a lot. My 2nd horse was a wild Mustang...I was the 1st one to ride him! I now like bareback Dressage riding and jumping!
I love all horse, dog, and cat people, too!!!!!!!!
Good song. Thanks.
Glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks for your support and kind words!!! It is a great joy to have people enjoying my music!
I have a 2nd music video on YouTube you might enjoy as well...for my song “I’m Tougher”, (also from my new CD “Horse Sense”).
Here is the YouTube link to see that video:
I’m putting a 3rd video together in iMovie right now!
Great graphic you posted for me!
Thanks for listening, and for your vote of confidence!
I watched 'I'm Tougher' right after I watched 'It's A Free Country'. I like it as well.
Ooooooooh!!! Thank you so much!!!!!
You can also listen to all of the songs from my new CD “Horse Sense”. Here is the link:
This is a dream come true, having so many people interested in my music!!!!!!!!!!
You are welcome. Used to do a little bit of jumping and dressage myself years ago of course. Bad health now. Did manage to go over a jump one time and the horse didn’t. Poor baby had colic and we didn’t know it. Got a nice back brace for that one for a while. LOL Cool about the wild Mustang. Had a friend who was I swear one of those horse whisperers. She was the only one I ever knew that could calm temperamental stallions especially getting them into the trailers.
I like horse, dog and cat people too.
OMG, I see you sing blues. I love blues. It’s my absolute favorite.
Oh, cool!!!!! Sorry about your fall that messed up your back!
I must have fallen off a thousand times, though I’ve not hit the ground in the past 30 years! The horse in the video would try every trick in the book to buck me off, riding bareback way out in the hills of upstate NY.
Wow, thanks!!!!! I also have a CD of live Blues from several NY State Budweiser Blues Festivals!!!
I recorded the other CDs in my log-cabin home recording studio. I play guitar, keyboards and bass.
I am thrilled at the response my music is getting!!!!
I sure wish I could give Sarah Palin a chance to hear my song “It’s A Free Country”...and a way to get it to the Tea Party!!!
A new fellow Freeper, Quill Pen, has a new album out with a very patriotic song that another fellow freeper, Dayglored has posted for our enjoyment. He says:
“This is a song that all of America needs to hear! It is dedicated to America, and to the troops that defend our freedom.”
I agree. He has linked to a YouTube of her song.
This is not an Apple thread but I thought the members would enjoy this, being that we are all conservatives.
She’s great and she also sings blues.
Thanks for the ping to the list!
FreeRepublic's Apple fans may be interested to know that she did this video on a 2007-era Intel Mac Mini, using iMovie 11. The raw video of her singing and playing was shot by yours truly using a Flip Video HD handheld, and imported into iMovie, where the title text was added and the post-processing was done prior to upload to YouTube. The final audio tracks were done mostly in Quill Pen's home studio; the soundtrack used in the iMovie final product is her CD mix.
iMovie 11 is amazing. She's done CD recordings for many years, but this was her first foray into a home-produced video.
Wow!! Thanks for listening to my song, and passing it along!!! I’m so happy you enjoyed it!
After many years of using Windows I’m back on a Mac, and I’ll never go back! Thanks to iMovie and Mac this video was made possible!!!
It means so much to me that you passed my song on to others!
My goal is for all of America to hear this song, to remind us how fortunate we are to live in this Great Nation!!!
I also like your profile page describing true meaning of Conservatism.
