This was tweeted yesterday night to #realDonaldTrump. The point being to see if he's interested in speaking up for this kind of thing.
Let’s Make America Great Again
Copyright 2016, 2017 Daniel R. Levy (BMI) and Ronnie L. Houser (ASCAP)
Words: Daniel R. Levy
Music: Daniel R. Levy and Ronnie L. Houser
Vocals: Ronnie L. Houser
Instrumentals: Daniel R. Levy (Piano, synth) and Ronnie L. Houser (Guitar, percussion)
Recording and Mixing: Ronnie L. Houser
Please note: this is a draft track, produced in a hurry in February 2017 in Omaha. Ronnie and I can do much better performances and mixes — see my other tracks on Soundcloud for examples.
We’ve had some ideas for medleys as well, for example prefacing the song with “America the Beautiful” or including strains of other classic patriotic songs in the accompaniment.
Please contact Ronnie L. Houser at 630-926-6269 for inquiries. The idea for this song was originally suggested in late 2016 by ASCAP to Ronnie (a gospel music contest first place champion out of 50 contenders at ASCAP in 2015) but ASCAP’s political concerns resulted in our having to promote this song ourselves. Personally I think that’s a shame, since the song itself isn’t tied to any politician. But to make lemonade out of a lemon situation, I’d like to see some BMI country artists approached with this song. (Hey Charlie Daniels, I am sure you could do better than my keyboard violin here!)
Let’s make America great again —
Let’s lift our story up (up, up)
To the point of God’s pen!
Let’s turn our eyes to heaven,
Leave behind what would have been —
Let’s make America great again!
We’ve seen a new spirit
Washing over the land;
Open up your ears and hear it
Sing a life that’s grand;
With love to all willing
To lift up the truth —
With every kind of healing
We’ll see the proof.
It’s not for people only
But for God this is done;
We weren’t made to be lonely
But to live with His Son;
With every kind of blessing
Our hearts to God we raise;
We won’t need to be guessing
The reason for our praise.
[Interlude — chorus played on instrumental solo w/accompaniment]
From sea to sea
A marvel of the earth
Will visible be
As we see new birth;
And let the whole world
Lift its hearts up too
As the banner unfurled
Heralds life anew.
[Chorus, with repeat on last line]
