God Bless The USA.
By Lee Greenwood.

Flag

GOD BLESS AMERICA AND PRAY FOR PEACE.

Wavy Flag

We'll fly our flags; We proudly stand
In this free country, our great land.
Bless America, Oh Father, we pray
The flags that wave on this sad day.

I AM THE FLAG OF THE
UNITED STATES
OF AMERICA

My name is

OLD GLORY

I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.
I stand watch in America's halls of justice.
I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
I stand guard with power in the world.
Look up and see me.

us-flag1.gif

I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.
I stand for freedom.
I am confident.
I am arrogant.
I am proud.

Wavy Flag

When I am flown with my fellow banners,
My head is a little higher,
My colors a little truer.

Wavy Flag

I bow to no one!
I am recognized all over the world.
I am worshipped - I am saluted.
I am loved - I am revered.
I am respected - and I am feared.

Wavy Flag

I have fought in every battle
of every war
for more then 200 years.

Wavy Flag

I was flown at Valley Forge,
Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appamatox.
I was there at San Juan Hill,
the trenches of France,
in the Argonne Forest,
Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy.

Wavy Flag

Guam, Okinawa, Korea and
KheSan, Saigon, Vietnam know me.
I was there.
I led my troops, I was dirty, battleworn and tired,
But my soldiers cheered me and I was proud.

Wavy Flag

I have slipped the bonds of Earth
and stood watch over the uncharted
frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon.
I have borne silent witness to all of America's finest hours.

Wavy Flag

BUT MY FINEST HOURS ARE YET TO COME

Wavy Flag

When I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When i am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent
at the grave of their fallen son or daughter,

I am proud.

I-- Me; an individual; a committee of one.
Pledge-- Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without
self-pity.
Allegiance-- My love and my devotion.
To the Flag-- Our standard; Old Glory; a symbol of Freedom;
wherever she waves there is respect, because
your loyalty has given her dignity that
shouts, Freedom is everybody's job
United-- That means that we have all come together.
States of America-- Individual communities that have united
into fifty great states. Fifty
individual communities with pride and
dignity and purpose. All divided with
imaginary boundaries, yet united to a
common purpose, and that is love for
country.
And to the Republic-- a state in which sovereign power is
invested in representatives chosen
by the people; and it's from the
people to the leaders, not from the
leaders to the people.
For which it stands
One Nation-- meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible-- Incapable of being divided.
With Liberty-- Which is Freedom; the right of power to live
ones's own life, without threats, fear, or
some sort of retaliation.
And Justice-- The principle, or qualities, of dealing fairly
with others.
For All-- which means, boys and girls, it's as much your
country as it is mine.
