"I pledge thee my allegiance, America, the bold, for this is my country to have and to hold." This Is My Country is an American patriotic folk song composed in 1940. The words and lyrics are by Don Raye and Al Jacobs. This new arrangement by Jerry Brubaker ads a contemporary flair to this wonderful patriotic work, opening with a fanfare-like statement leading to the charming familiar melody. A hearty addition to the repertoire that will complete every program.
