America, I Love You - Columbia 1842 - 01/1916 - Reached # 4 on US music charts in 1916.
Sam Ash ( b. Aug 28, 1884 Kentucky, USA - d. Oct 20, 1951 Hollywood, CA, USA ) Curly-haired singer and entertainer Sam Ash was fairly busy in Broadway musicals of the 1910s and 1920s. His most famous numbers include the nonsensical duo with Grace Nash entitled "Rackety-Koo'" from the 1915 Katrinka and the enthusiastic solo "Oh, What a Girl!" from the show of the same name; he also appeared in Some Party and The Passing Show, both from 1922. Sam Ash was a prolific singer on early records, beginning with Columbia in 1915 and continuing to make them into the early '20s; he made more sides for Columbia's Little Wonder subsidiary than did his contemporary Henry Burr, and also recorded for Gennett, Grey Gull, and numerous other small independent labels of the era.
America, I Love You Lyric by Edgar Leslie & Music by Archie Gottlier:
Amid fields of clover,
T'was just a little over
A hundred years ago,
A handful of strangers,
They faced many dangers,
To make their country grow.
t's now quite a nation
Of wond'rous population,
And free from ev'ry king!
It's your land, it's my land,
A great do or die land,
And that's just why I sing:
America, I love you!
You're like a sweetheart of mine!
From ocean to ocean,
For you my devotion,
Is touching each bound'ry line.
Just like a little baby
Climbing it's mother's knee,
America, I love you!
And there's a hundred million others like me!
From all sorts of places,
They welcomed all the races
To settle on their shore.
They didn't care which one,
The poor or the rich one,
They still had room for more.
To give them protection
By popular election,
a set of laws they chose.
They're your laws and my laws,
For your cause and my cause.
That's why this country rose.
America, I love you!
You're like a sweetheart of mine!
From ocean to ocean,
For you my devotion,
Is touching each bound'ry line.
Just like a little baby
Climbing it's mother's knee,
America, I love you!
And there's a hundred million others like me!
