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.

Happy 4th of July!
