God Bless America” is an American patriotic song originally written by Irving Berlin in 1918 and revised by him in 1938. It is sometimes considered an unofficial national anthem of the United States.[1] It also served as the inspiration for another anthem, Woodie Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land”, which was written in response to it.
