Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Our Flag

The pictures in the mail today
Quite took me by surpise

One made my heart catch in my chest
Brought teardrops to my eyes

You flew our flag high on that pole
With honor, joy and pride

To simply show how much you cared
That some had fought and died

To keep this old world safe and free
From terror blood and pain

And any time that freedom cries
They'll do it once again

Tonight we sleep in quiet peace
Because some gave their all

Not only proud Americans
But nations large and small

So let us all stand hand in hand
Around this world so wide

To keep and hold the things we love
Forever safe inside

And let us raise our flags on high
All nations of this earth

To show each man is equal
No matter where his birth

And let us try to end all wars
All nations live as one

So we can grow together
In peace beneath God's Sun
