Approximate lyrics for Martina McBride's song "Independence Day"
She looked alright in dawn's early light, but she looked a little worried,
She tried to pretend he wasn't drinking again,
But Daddy left the proof on her cheek.
I was only 8 years old that summer,
And I always seemed to feel in the way
So I took myself down to the fair in town on Independence Day
[images of parade]
Word gets around in a small, small town,
And it was said Daddy was a dangerous man.
But Momma was proud and stood her ground
She knew she was on the losing end.
Some folks talked, but folks looked the other way.
When time ran out, there was no one about on Independence Day.
Chorus: Let freedom ring… let the whole world know that today is the day of reckoning …
[images of fighting]
…The fourth of July…
By the time the firemen came, they put the flames and took down some names,
And sent me to the county home [for children removed from or abandoned by their parents]
Now to this day, I don't know if it was right or wrong, but maybe it's the only way
Let freedom ring…… Let the whole world know about the day of reckoning……………
