“Strong: A Boston Anthem,” AKA: THE BOSTON ANTHEM

With words and music by singer/composer Amanda Carr, and sung by longtime Boston performing and recording artist Charlie Farren, Strong: A Boston Anthem salutes and unifies the indomitable city-wide spirit that our nation has hailed with admiration and appreciation. Strong reflects on the past that has shaped us, highlights our successes in dealing with today’s challenges and underscores a future that is hopeful and exciting. Strong celebrates our history and who we have become, both as individuals and as a community.

As Boston’s legacy unfolds, it is clear that it has a soul with the greatest source of wealth being its people. Bostonians have been paving the way for freedom, justice and change since colonial times. Many who have been leading pioneers in the fields of medicine, education, politics, sports and the arts call Boston their home. And the spotlight equally shines on those who contribute every day to their families, schools, churches and neighborhoods. These are our heroes. These are our people and the true spirit of Boston.

When faced with obstacles, Bostonians unite without hesitation to aid neighbors, defend our values and do the hard work that it takes to prevail. And we have prevailed. We will continue to prevail. We are Boston… We are Strong.

STRONG: A Boston Anthem

Words and music by Amanda Carr

My town was built upon a story
of ships to shore and guts to glory
Where did it all go when we grew
to a place that we just knew
as Home…

It’s the bond we have between us
We take our fight to the arenas
Proud of the teams that make us first, with our heroes on our shirts
Our Home… is flesh and bone

My town is made of Blood & Steel
Its heart is beating like a drum
We run through the streets and sing the song
that made us Boston Strong
We’re Strong, We’re Strong, Strong…

And now we live to tell the story,
of our hopes, our strength our glory
A soul that is deeper than the ground, we stood on when we found
that ‘One’ is not alone

My town is made of Blood & Steel
Its heart is beating like a drum
We run through the streets and sing the song
that made us Boston Strong
We’re Strong, We’re Strong, Strong…
