Wave On, Red, White and Blue
There’s a beautiful flag that’s waving;
So special for all of my life;
Many times carried to battle
Over men’s conflicts and strife.
I’ve seen it draped over a casket,
Folded in triangle shape too,
You understand lives were given -
Wave on red, white and blue!
When evil men dare to attack us
Or deal out a terrorist blow;
Our flag is a symbol of status -
Flying high like a torch, up it goes!
On every government building,
Over every ship in the bay,
Every county court house -
Each little church by the way.
And it feels so good the see the red, white and blue
Flying high all across our land,
And there seems to be an endless stream of songs that we sing,
American, God bless you, - hand in hand...
We’ll sing them all together once again...
We’ll raise our flag the highest it has been...
We’ll stand united singing songs of you...
Wave on! Wave on! Bright red, white, and blue!
