The Red The White and The Blue

It's a Grand Ole Flag

by Patty Palmer

It's a grand ole flag
The red, white, and blue
Standing for justice
Freedom for me and you.

It waves proudly
Against the bright blue sky.
Many have fought for it
And for it many die.

It's gone into battle
More times than can be told
It stands for our way of life
That can't be bought or sold.

It's been there since the beginning
It will remain there 'til the end
To those who'd be an enemy
It's a message that we send.

Long may she wave
Over our beloved land
May freedom reign forever
And forever let it stand.
