Patriot Submit Correct Lyrics

And the rivers shall open for the righteous (X2)
And the rivers shall open for the righteous,someday

I went walking,with my brother
And he wondered,oh,how I am
Said what I believe with my soul
Ain't what I see with my eyes
And there's no turning back this time

I am a patriot,and I love my country
Because my country is all I know
I wanna be with my family
People who understand me
I got no place else to go...
I am a patriot...

I went walking,with my girlfriend
She looked so fine,I said,"Baby,what's on your mind?"
She said,"I wanna run like the lions
Released from their cages
Released from the rages burning in my soul tonight"
I am a patriot...

And I ain't no communist
And I ain't no socialist
And I ain't no capitalist
And I ain't no imperialist
And I ain't no democrat
I sure ain't no republican either
I only know one party,and that is freedom
I am,I am,I am...

I am a patriot,and I love my country
Because my country is all I know

And the rivers shall open for the righteous (X2)
And the rivers shall open for the righteous,someday
Someday,someday,someday...
