G is for Grand Old Flag





G is for Grand Old Flag

The song, You're a Grand Old Flag

was written by George M. Cohan as the opening song 

for his stage musical, George Washington, Jr. in 1906.





"You're a grand old flag





You're a high flying flag





And forever in peace may you wave



You're the emblem of




The land I love.



The home of the free and the brave.




Ev'ry heart beats true



'neath the Red, White, and Blue,




Where there's never a boast or brag.





Should auld acquaintance be forgotten,



Keep your eye on the grand old flag."

Words by George M. Cohan.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
