A Little Summer Patriotism

I. Medley of Songs from World War I
Over There (Geo. M. Cohan 1878-1942)
Keep The Home Fires Burning (Ivor Novello 1893-1951)
Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag (Felix Powell 1878-1942)

Anchors Away (Navy)
Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder (Air Force)
From the Shores of Montezuma (Marines & oldest song in the Armed Forces)
Waltzing Matilda (U.S. First Marine Division Marching Song-without words))
Though virtually Australia's National Anthem, this Marine division adopted the song during their time in Australia in WW II and it is still played whenever shipping out.
Semper Paratus (Coast Guard)
Heave Ho, My Lads, Heave Ho (Merchant Marine)

III. Three Interesting American Folk Songs
Cindy
Really "The Gospel Train" also known as "Get on Board Little Children" but took the name Cindy when it was placed in North Carolina elementary school songbooks as an example of folk music.
He's Gone Away
Except that it is decidedly from North Carolina, not much else is known about the origin of this song.
Blow the Man Down
British connections but a major sea shanty song on ships bound for other countries from the U.S. with apparently an 1860s origin.

IV. Two Patriotic Essentials !
You're a Grand Old Flag (by George M. Cohan from one of his broadway shows)
God Bless America
God Bless America (by Berlin has a lovely verse rarely heard. Carillons are often called "Singing Towers" but you'll have to do the real singing and here are the words to the verse:

"While the storm clouds gather far across the sea / Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free / Let us all be grateful for a land so fair, / As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer…God Bless America" etc.
