Closed captions
  • Bill Gaither: Life is made up of moments...
  • 00:00:08.210 --> 00:00:26.010
  • ... like turning the pages of a photograph album.
  • 00:00:26.020 --> 00:00:28.220
  • Our memories preserve for us the relationships...
  • 00:00:28.230 --> 00:00:31.110
  • ... and events that tell the stories of each of our lives.
  • 00:00:31.120 --> 00:00:36.080
  • Happy, sad, joyful, and painful.
  • 00:00:36.090 --> 00:00:39.230
  • The memories of our days make up the fabric...
  • 00:00:39.240 --> 00:00:42.240
  • ... of who we are.
  • 00:00:42.250 --> 00:00:44.210
  • (Choir Singing) Precious Memories
  • 00:00:44.220 --> 00:00:51.180
  • How they linger
  • 00:00:51.190 --> 00:00:59.070
  • How they ever flood my soul
  • 00:00:59.080 --> 00:01:12.150
  • Bill Gaither: An unforgettable memory was made when dozens of friends...
  • 00:01:12.160 --> 00:01:15.280
  • ... who had spent their lives in gospel music...
  • 00:01:15.290 --> 00:01:18.040
  • ... gathered to sings some songs from their own...
  • 00:01:18.050 --> 00:01:20.180
  • ... personal treasure of memories.
  • 00:01:20.190 --> 00:01:23.130
  • For these folks, many precious memories...
  • 00:01:23.140 --> 00:01:26.130
  • ... had begun around a piano somewhere.
  • 00:01:26.140 --> 00:01:28.110
  • They're sharing songs about how their lives have been changed...
  • 00:01:28.120 --> 00:01:32.130
  • ... by God's amazing grace.
  • 00:01:32.140 --> 00:01:34.140
  • Precious scenes unfold
  • 00:01:34.150 --> 00:01:40.070
  • - Hi, I'm Bill Gaither,
  • 00:01:40.080 --> 00:01:41.290
  • and I am so blessed to be an American.
  • 00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:44.210
  • You know, I grew up in Alexandria, Indiana--
  • 00:01:44.220 --> 00:01:48.010
  • Smalltown, USA-- where we learned the value
  • 00:01:48.020 --> 00:01:51.100
  • of hard work, community, and faith.
  • 00:01:51.110 --> 00:01:54.040
  • Now, after decades of writing songs
  • 00:01:54.050 --> 00:01:56.180
  • and traveling all over the world,
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:58.120
  • those values still hold my feet firmly on the ground.
  • 00:01:58.130 --> 00:02:02.280
  • So I am pleased to present this musical salute
  • 00:02:02.290 --> 00:02:06.020
  • to all of the things that still make America great.
  • 00:02:06.030 --> 00:02:10.230
  • all: This land is your land.
  • 00:02:10.240 --> 00:02:13.090
  • This land is my land,
  • 00:02:13.100 --> 00:02:15.200
  • from California to the New York island,
  • 00:02:15.210 --> 00:02:20.110
  • from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters.
  • 00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:25.260
  • This land was made for you and me.
  • 00:02:25.270 --> 00:02:29.230
  • - As I was walking that ribbon of highway,
  • 00:02:29.240 --> 00:02:34.140
  • I saw above me that endless skyway.
  • 00:02:34.150 --> 00:02:39.040
  • I saw below me that golden valley.
  • 00:02:39.050 --> 00:02:44.200
  • This land was made for you and me.
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:48.200
  • all: This land is your land.
  • 00:02:48.210 --> 00:02:51.000
  • This land is my land,
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:53.090
  • from California to the New York island,
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:58.010
  • from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters.
  • 00:02:58.020 --> 00:03:03.160
  • This land was made for you and me.
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:07.160
  • - I've roamed and rambled, and my footsteps led me
  • 00:03:07.170 --> 00:03:12.050
  • to the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts.
  • 00:03:12.060 --> 00:03:16.280
  • And all around me, a voice was sounding,
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:22.120
  • "This land was made for you and me."
  • 00:03:22.130 --> 00:03:26.100
  • all: This land is your land.
  • 00:03:26.110 --> 00:03:28.190
  • This land is my land,
  • 00:03:28.200 --> 00:03:31.020
  • from California to the New York island,
  • 00:03:31.030 --> 00:03:35.250
  • from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters.
  • 00:03:35.260 --> 00:03:41.020
  • This land was made for you and me.
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:45.130
  • [upbeat music]
  • 00:03:45.140 --> 00:03:48.130
  • 00:03:48.140 --> 00:03:56.140
  • - When the sun come shining and I was strolling...
  • 00:04:03.280 --> 00:04:08.210
  • - And the wheat fields waving...
  • 00:04:08.220 --> 00:04:11.040
  • and the dust clouds rolling...
  • 00:04:11.050 --> 00:04:13.130
  • - As the fog was lifting, a voice was chanting,
  • 00:04:13.140 --> 00:04:18.220
  • "This land was made for you and me."
  • 00:04:18.230 --> 00:04:22.260
  • all: This land is your land.
  • 00:04:22.270 --> 00:04:25.050
  • This land is my land,
  • 00:04:25.060 --> 00:04:27.170
  • from California to the New York island,
  • 00:04:27.180 --> 00:04:32.070
  • from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters.
  • 00:04:32.080 --> 00:04:37.230
  • This land was made for you and me.
  • 00:04:37.240 --> 00:04:41.220
  • This land is your land.
  • 00:04:41.230 --> 00:04:44.010
  • This land is my land,
  • 00:04:44.020 --> 00:04:46.120
  • from California to the New York island,
  • 00:04:46.130 --> 00:04:51.010
  • from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters.
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:56.250
  • This land was made for you and me.
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:05:01.120
  • This land was made for you and me.
  • 00:05:01.130 --> 00:05:06.110
  • This land was made for you and me.
  • 00:05:06.120 --> 00:05:13.190
  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:05:13.200 --> 00:05:16.200
  • 00:05:18.210 --> 00:05:22.120
  • This land is your land.
  • 00:05:22.130 --> 00:05:24.260
  • This land is my land.
  • 00:05:24.270 --> 00:05:26.220
  • - Many of us have had the opportunity
  • 00:05:26.230 --> 00:05:28.170
  • to travel to several other countries,
  • 00:05:28.180 --> 00:05:30.200
  • and each has its unique beauty and charm.
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:33.000
  • But the greatest thrill of all
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:34.290
  • is to traverse this great land we call "home,"
  • 00:05:35.000 --> 00:05:37.060
  • America, where from coast to coast,
  • 00:05:37.070 --> 00:05:39.270
  • we find variety beyond description.
  • 00:05:39.280 --> 00:05:42.120
  • The hint of Sweden, Norway, and Finland in Seattle,
  • 00:05:42.130 --> 00:05:45.090
  • the Upper Peninsula of Michigan,
  • 00:05:45.100 --> 00:05:46.280
  • and the north country of Wisconsin.
  • 00:05:46.290 --> 00:05:48.280
  • The lush vineyards and gardens of Tuscany and France
  • 00:05:48.290 --> 00:05:52.100
  • are echoed in the Napa Valley and the miles of vegetables
  • 00:05:52.110 --> 00:05:55.270
  • in the rich garden counties of California.
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:58.180
  • And how could the fruit orchards of the Greek isles
  • 00:05:58.190 --> 00:06:01.030
  • match the miles of citrus groves of Florida?
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:04.020
  • The deserts of the Middle East
  • 00:06:04.030 --> 00:06:06.010
  • are echoed in Arizona and New Mexico.
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:08.160
  • The beautiful green of Ireland can be found
  • 00:06:08.170 --> 00:06:11.040
  • right on our own East Coast.
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:13.030
  • Between the coasts and the mountains
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:15.140
  • stretch the immense breadbasket we call the Midwest heartlands
  • 00:06:15.150 --> 00:06:19.040
  • and the rolling prairie.
  • 00:06:19.050 --> 00:06:20.200
  • The canyons, the Rockies, the plains,
  • 00:06:20.210 --> 00:06:24.040
  • and the redwood forests
  • 00:06:24.050 --> 00:06:25.210
  • make the cedars of Lebanon bow in respect.
  • 00:06:25.220 --> 00:06:28.200
  • The old west--Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma--
  • 00:06:28.210 --> 00:06:33.280
  • are so unique that half the world
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:35.240
  • thinks all Americans wear ten-gallon hats
  • 00:06:35.250 --> 00:06:38.040
  • and ride off into the sunset
  • 00:06:38.050 --> 00:06:39.260
  • and grow up to be Annie Oakley or John Wayne.
  • 00:06:39.270 --> 00:06:42.140
  • We are so blessed and so spoiled.
  • 00:06:42.150 --> 00:06:45.180
  • May we always be generous with our great, rich heritage.
  • 00:06:45.190 --> 00:06:49.170
  • May we care for this country and preserve not only its beauty
  • 00:06:49.180 --> 00:06:53.040
  • but the big-hearted spirit
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.250
  • that once opened its arms to our ancestors.
  • 00:06:54.260 --> 00:06:57.200
  • We are so indebted to those who have gone before us
  • 00:06:57.210 --> 00:07:01.140
  • and to those who will follow.
  • 00:07:01.150 --> 00:07:03.130
  • [bluesy music]
  • 00:07:04.130 --> 00:07:07.120
  • 00:07:07.130 --> 00:07:15.130
  • all: O beautiful for spacious skies,
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:26.050
  • for amber waves of grain,
  • 00:07:26.060 --> 00:07:33.280
  • for purple mountain majesty above the fruited plain.
  • 00:07:33.290 --> 00:07:44.000
  • for purple mountain majesty above the fruited plain.
  • 00:07:44.000 --> 00:07:48.290
  • America, America, God shed His grace on thee
  • 00:07:49.000 --> 00:07:59.010
  • America, America, God shed His grace on thee
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:04.250
  • and crown thy good with brotherhood
  • 00:08:04.260 --> 00:08:12.150
  • from sea to shining sea.
  • 00:08:12.160 --> 00:08:18.140
  • O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years.
  • 00:08:24.120 --> 00:08:34.130
  • O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years.
  • 00:08:34.130 --> 00:08:39.180
  • Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears.
  • 00:08:39.190 --> 00:08:49.200
  • Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears.
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:54.270
  • America, America, God shed His grace on thee
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:09:05.010
  • America, America, God shed His grace on thee
  • 00:09:05.010 --> 00:09:10.130
  • and crown thy good with brotherhood
  • 00:09:10.140 --> 00:09:18.060
  • from sea to shining sea.
  • 00:09:18.070 --> 00:09:26.020
  • And crown thy good with brotherhood
  • 00:09:26.030 --> 00:09:33.220
  • from sea to shining sea.
  • 00:09:33.230 --> 00:09:43.240
  • from sea to shining sea.
  • 00:09:43.240 --> 00:09:52.260
  • - You know, this old character
  • 00:09:53.290 --> 00:09:55.180
  • has covered a lot of territory in our travels over the years,
  • 00:09:55.190 --> 00:09:59.060
  • but it still amazes me
  • 00:09:59.070 --> 00:10:00.280
  • to see the variety of beautiful landscapes
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:03.170
  • contained inside these United States.
  • 00:10:03.180 --> 00:10:06.170
  • One beautiful place is just outside Denver in Colorado,
  • 00:10:06.180 --> 00:10:10.250
  • and it's called the Red Rocks.
  • 00:10:10.260 --> 00:10:12.210
  • Go with us.
  • 00:10:12.220 --> 00:10:13.290
  • - I love doing what I do.
  • 00:10:14.000 --> 00:10:15.280
  • I love singing with my friends, and I love seeing the country,
  • 00:10:15.290 --> 00:10:19.120
  • meeting folks in every little nook and cranny where we travel.
  • 00:10:19.130 --> 00:10:22.270
  • To live long enough to make it to Red Rocks, Colorado--
  • 00:10:22.280 --> 00:10:26.010
  • what an incredible thrill.
  • 00:10:26.020 --> 00:10:28.020
  • But there's nothing as sweet
  • 00:10:28.030 --> 00:10:29.210
  • as heading out that Tennessee countryside
  • 00:10:29.220 --> 00:10:31.250
  • and turning down Stockard Road--
  • 00:10:31.260 --> 00:10:33.240
  • seeing the familiar landmarks that lead to White Tail Hollow
  • 00:10:33.250 --> 00:10:37.080
  • to round the bend where I can see the lights
  • 00:10:37.090 --> 00:10:39.240
  • of our old log house, sneak up on Angie and the boys,
  • 00:10:39.250 --> 00:10:44.010
  • smell supper cooking on the stove,
  • 00:10:44.020 --> 00:10:46.080
  • see a fire flickering in the fireplace.
  • 00:10:46.090 --> 00:10:49.010
  • Now, I tell you, that is the best destination of all.
  • 00:10:49.020 --> 00:10:53.180
  • - There's a storm across the valley.
  • 00:10:53.190 --> 00:10:58.160
  • Clouds are rolling in.
  • 00:10:58.170 --> 00:11:02.140
  • The afternoon is heavy on your shoulder.
  • 00:11:02.150 --> 00:11:09.190
  • There's a truck out on the four-lane
  • 00:11:09.200 --> 00:11:13.290
  • a mile or more away,
  • 00:11:14.000 --> 00:11:17.230
  • and the whining of his wheels just makes it colder.
  • 00:11:17.240 --> 00:11:25.150
  • He's an hour away from riding,
  • 00:11:25.160 --> 00:11:29.110
  • all your prayers up in the sky,
  • 00:11:29.120 --> 00:11:33.160
  • ten days on the road barely gone.
  • 00:11:33.170 --> 00:11:41.150
  • There's a fire softly burning, supper on the stove.
  • 00:11:41.160 --> 00:11:49.090
  • It's the light in your eyes that makes him warm.
  • 00:11:49.100 --> 00:11:57.160
  • all: Hey, it's good to be back home again.
  • 00:11:57.170 --> 00:12:06.070
  • Sometimes this old farm feels like a long-lost friend.
  • 00:12:06.080 --> 00:12:12.140
  • Yes, and, hey, it's good to be back home again.
  • 00:12:12.150 --> 00:12:21.090
  • - There's all the news to tell him.
  • 00:12:21.100 --> 00:12:25.280
  • How'd you spend your time?
  • 00:12:25.290 --> 00:12:29.290
  • What's the latest thing the neighbors say?
  • 00:12:30.000 --> 00:12:36.260
  • And your mother called last Friday.
  • 00:12:36.270 --> 00:12:41.030
  • Sunshinemade her cry.
  • 00:12:41.040 --> 00:12:45.030
  • And you felt the baby move just yesterday.
  • 00:12:45.040 --> 00:12:53.070
  • all: Hey, it's good to be back home again.
  • 00:12:53.080 --> 00:13:01.250

  • 00:13:08.090 --> 00:13:16.130
  • - And, oh, the time when I can lay this tired old body down,

  • feel your fingers feather-soft upon me,
  • 00:13:25.120 --> 00:13:32.230
  • the kisses that I live for, the love that lights my way,
  • 00:13:32.240 --> 00:13:40.160
  • the happiness that living with you brings me.

  • just spending time with you.
  • 00:13:52.150 --> 00:13:56.100
  • It's the little things that make a house a home.
