Lee Greenwood upset that school took word ‘God’ out of his song

Details of the song change here:

Following outrage from parents; a changed version of “God Bless the USA” has  been pulled from an upcoming school assembly concert.

According to parents, children at Stall Brook Elementary school were told to  sing “We love the USA” instead of “God Bless the USA” during the chorus of the  popular Lee Greenwood song.

The school changed the song back after an outcry.

Some of the outcry took place on Twitter:

    It is a song, one of the most inspiring songs around. Do not change the words.

    He probably could tell them they don’t get to use it at all anymore, since he probably owns the rights to the song.

    Actions should have consequences.
