It’s a Grand Old Flag

  • from George M. Cohan

It’s a grand old flag,
It’s a high flying flag!
If you bum it,
It lives through the fire.
Demonstrations of hate
Cannot desecrate–
Free speech
Just makes it fly higher.

Our hearts beat true
For the red, white and blue
When we honor
Its liberty.
Lest freedom ‘s ringing
Be forgot
Keep your eye on
What makes us free!
