“You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high flying flag,
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re an emblem of the land that I love,
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true,
‘Neath the Red, White, and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
But should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.”
Chorus from “You’re a Grand Old Flag” by George M. Cohan, published 1906
I wish everyone a safe, happy, and fun-filled 4th of July holiday as we celebrate the birth of our wonderful country.
God bless America!
