Liberia In the 60s
The Lone Star forever
The national song
When freedom raised her glowing form on Montserrado's verdant height, She set within the doom of night, 'midst low ring stars and thunderstorms the star of liberty - and seizing from the waking morn, its burnished shield of golden flame she lifted in her proud name and raise a people long forlorn to noble destiny The Lone Star forever! The Lone Star forever! O long may it float over land and over sea. Desert it, no never! Uphold it, forever! O shout for the Lone Star banner, All hail.
