Verse :
    Well, in seventeen and seven four, they sought a better way
    People swore they couldn't affore,' but still they had no say
    Jefferson and them that won, for life and liberty
    Stood by George at Valley Forge, 'gainst all odds to be free


Verse :
    By eighteen hundred and sixty's light, the yarn had all but spun
    'Civil fight they called states' right, with brother had begun
    Truth be told, the country bold, had come into it's own

    Though manifest first drove 'em west, t'was Lincoln showed 'em home


Refrain :
    Okie Dokie, Okie Dokie, Okie Dokie little okie, Okie Dokie
    When it came to strike the band, that yankee honored Dixie Land;
    Okie Dokie little okie, Okie Dokie


Verse :
    Now, in nineteen hundred and sixty four, another hundred years
    Two world wars, broke another door, to heartbreak and tears
    A sober nod, with thanks to God, left just as soon to blind

    For once the march had lost His heart, 'paid no never mind.


Refrain :
    Okie Dokie, Okie Dokie, Okie Dokie little okie, Okie Dokie
    With a tattered flag in hand, Yankee Doodle made a stand;
    Okie Dokie little okie, Okie Dokie


Verse :
    Today the tune that's in our head, tests all those alive
    Cash now red flows through the fed, where one plus one is five
    But if we give up the silver cup, God given liberty

    All her pain would be in vain, for freedom we've received.


Refrain :
    Okie Dokie, Okie Dokie, Okie Dokie little okie, Okie Dokie
    There's a will, there is a way and Yankee Doodle had his say;
    Okie Dokie little okie, Okie Dokie


Refrain :
    Okie Dokie, Okie Dokie, Okie Dokie little okie, Okie Dokie
    With a feather and a bang, our Yankee Doodle marched and sang;
    Okie Dokie little okie, Okie Dokie

God has given to men.

All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this book.

But for it,we could not know
right from wrong."

but to save them . . . "
