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
