I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free ...
The "at least" is inappropriate to the theme of the song. "At least" implies a small consolation, such as, "I'm proud to be at Wal-Mart, where at least the parking's free." ... An example of revised lyrics would be, "I'm proud to be an American, and to know I'm strong and free."

I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free.
This lyric must give English teachers fits. '[A]n American' is a person, but 'where' refers to a place! What makes this particularly inexcusable is that the lyric could have been easily fixed by changing 'an American' to 'in America'... since Mr. Greenwood does not mention any place.
